The mechanism of a Trust can be useful for a number of reasons. For example:
- To benefit young children or grandchildren during their minority;
- To benefit family members who are either physically or mentally incapable of dealing with their own affairs;
- As part of a wider Inheritance Tax Planning Scheme;
- Upon receipt of a personal injury settlement;
- Under the terms of a Will.
The obligations on Trustees can be time consuming. Trust Funds have to be invested correctly and there is an ongoing obligation to ensure they remain the best investment for the beneficiaries.
