Taxation of Trusts

Trusts are subject to their own tax rules and there are many types of tax that can impact on trusts. Hart Brown’s team of trusts solicitors help you to navigate through these.

Capital Gains Tax can have an impact on trust funds. Our team of trust solicitors can advise trustees on the capital gains tax payable and we can help you to run the trust tax-efficiently.

Income tax can affect multiple types of trusts including life interest trusts and discretionary trusts. Our team of expert trusts solicitors can advise you on strategies for trustees to reduce as much as possible the income tax due.

Most new trusts are subject to Inheritance Tax (IHT) but there are different rules that will apply depending on the type of trust. Our team are highly experienced in advising on inheritance tax planning and over the years have saved our clients’ families hundreds of thousands of pounds in inheritance tax.

If you choose to dispose of any assets inside or outside a trust, our specialist trust solicitors will help you to consider the tax implications this will have.
