Trust FAQ’s

A trust in Australia is a legal structure that allows one party (the trustee) to hold and manage assets or property for the benefit of another party (the beneficiary). The trustee has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the beneficiary.

Common types of trusts in Australia include discretionary trusts, unit trusts, fixed trusts, and testamentary trusts. Each type has specific features and purposes, such as asset protection, tax planning or estate planning.

Trusts in Australia may be subject to different tax rules depending on their type and purpose. Discretionary trusts, for example, provide flexibility in distributing income to beneficiaries, potentially resulting in tax advantages. However, it’s important to comply with tax laws and regulations.

Trustees in Australia have legal responsibilities, including the duty to act in the best interests of beneficiaries, manage trust assets prudently, avoid conflicts of interest, and provide accurate accounts and reports to beneficiaries.

Setting up a trust in Australia involves creating a trust deed and appointing a trustee. Legal and financial considerations include selecting the right type of trust, understanding tax implications, and complying with all legal requirements, including stamp duty and registration.
