The practical application of difficult concepts
Help you and your practice avoid the pitfalls of managing trusts
Ensure your clients are not paying more tax than they need to

With so many areas of complexity and confusion, dealing with trusts is rarely a straightforward exercise.


In this two part webinar series we cover some of the key trust issues, especially those areas of uncertainty where practitioners are still getting it wrong.  We look at planning opportunities for trust clients and the steps to take to ensure that these strategies are implemented in a tax efficient way.


We also look at recent changes which impact on trusts, including round-robin arrangements and changes to the rules for testamentary trusts.
