Do I need a Trust?

If you have a pension, Death in Service benefits or Life Cover, you need a Trust.

If you want to protect your children’s inheritances from lifetime impacts such as children divorcing or lifetime gifting, you need a trust.

If you also own a property or business, land or other assets, you need a Trust framework that will hold all of your individual Trust solutions.

Our Trust frameworks are set up whilst you are alive which gives you much more flexibility if you decide to change the distribution of your wealth.

What type of Trusts do I need?

For your Death in Service and Pensions – Asset Preservation Trust Holds your Death in Service lump sums, SIPP funds and personal pensions, including those in drawdown, following your death.

For your estate planning – Beneficiary Protection Plan

The plan addresses the common shortfalls of clients with inefficient or without Will planning and delivers long term wealth preservation benefits for client’s children.

The Beneficiary Protection Plan delivers two key benefits of saving next generation taxation as well as protecting children’s inheritances from lifetime impacts such as children divorcing. The framework also delivers the additional facility to accommodate lifetime protective gifting.

Common issues faced include:

• Clients using unprotected gifting methods in an attempt to reduce their own IHT or simply to assist their children.
• Wills leaving a residual estate in equal shares to children
• Wills leaving an estate to a single child.
• Lack of use of life interest gifting or planning for younger couples.
• Clients with Wills gifting to elderly Siblings.
• Clients leaving business assets to a beneficiary.

For your life cover – Assurance Trust

Holds your death benefit payments from life cover policies, including critical illness policies and relevant life plans.

Is tailored to your individual needs and certified by our legal partners.

Policy payments held in Trust are not included in your estate, so they can be paid to your family without the grant of probate.

For your investment bonds – Multiple Bond Trust

Holds bonds from multiple providers which are not currently held in Trust.

Can be transferred absolutely or you can keep the ‘income’ rights but give up the right to the capital.

The bond is not included in your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes after seven years.

For gifts and loans – Solidus Loan Trust

Holds gift and loan sums from one or more existing or future bonds, or gifts from your family estate.

With the right planning, your children can also use the Trust properties for their own tax and social protection benefits.

Ongoing maintenance of the Trust is required.
