As a separate legal entity, a trust is required to the registered with the Trust Registration Service if it has a tax liability arising.
With effect from 2022 trusts will be required to register even if they do not have a tax liability.
That tax liability includes income tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax and stamp duty land tax.
Depending on the terms of the Trust Deed, trustees’ powers can include the powers to invest hold land and in certain circumstances carry on a trade.
It is good practice to prepare annual accounts to show the income and assets of the trust including where applicable separate beneficiary funds and distribution accounts.
