When setting up a Trust you will need to decide who will be your Trustees, these are the people in charge of managing the Trust Fund, making provision for the beneficiaries and completing any necessary tax returns and trust forms.
Our lawyers are experienced in acting as professional Trustees. In this role we always consider your wishes when administering the Trust and, wherever possible, liaise with the beneficiaries, their families and carers, to ensure their needs and requirements are met.
We offer support and advice to Trustees on a number of trust related issues. When setting up a Trust, Trustees often need support in dealing with the administration and understanding their duties and responsibilities.
Throughout the lifetime of the Trust we can advise on the completion of trust accounts and tax returns, we can arrange and assist with investment advice and help the Trustees to run the Trust tax efficiently.
Trustees may also require ad hoc advice regarding payments to beneficiaries, changing of Trustees and winding up of a Trust.
We also provide Executor services if you would like to select a professional person to be in charge of the process of administering your Will, as Executors we carry out the wishes of the deceased correctly and appropriately within the law.
