WILLS, TRUSTS, TAX AND PROBATE
Trusts and Trust Administration
Trusts can be complicated. Our aim is to help you understand how they work.
The creation and management of trusts is a very specialist area of the law, and there are many traps for the ill-advised. There have been substantial changes to the tax rules and registration relating to trusts. If you are responsible for a trust and it has not been reviewed recently, it is essential that a review takes place as soon as possible.

We can advise on:
- New Inheritance Tax Rules
- Trust Reviews
- Variation of Trusts
- General Trust Administration
- Trust Accounts
- Distributions to Beneficiaries
- Powers and Duties of Trustees
