In April 2003 Andrew Sinclair presented to Port Lincoln the topic regarding 'Assorted Trust issues'. Since that time there have been some developments. This paper addresses them, including:
- what does it mean to split or clone a trust?
- when might splitting or cloning a trust be appropriate?
- what CGT ramifications are there on splitting/cloning?
- stamp duty issues arising from the above
- distributions to corporate beneficiaries - amended Division 7A
- prescribed private fund - what is it and when may it be appropriate?
- small business CGT concessions with discretionary trusts - amended concept of connected entities.
