Trusts are known to have a flexibility that can achieve favourable tax outcomes, whether used as a vehicle for running a business or as the entity to hold investments. Yet their flexibility shouldn’t be lost to the complications that can arise when administering a trust. This session provides some tips and traps regarding the use of trusts, including:

  • Trustee resolutions:
    • what does the deed say?
    • present entitlement requirements
    • streaming capital gains or franked distributions
  • The differences between accounting income, trust income, and taxable income
  • How the tax applicable to a trust distribution depends on the status of the beneficiary
  • In what situations can the trustee be assessed?
  • What is a section 100A reimbursement agreement?
  • What to consider if a beneficiary is a non resident?
  • What are family trust elections and interposed entity elections and when should they be considered?
