If you are considering setting up a family trust, understanding what they are and how they operate is crucial. A family trust is also known as a discretionary trust. It is a financial relationship between family members that facilitates the sharing of wealth.
In general, a member of the family, on behalf of the other family members, will set up a family trust. One of the many benefits of a family trust is that it allows for tax minimisation by distributing income and capital to its beneficiaries.
In many cases, a family trust serves as a vehicle for asset protection in the event of a family member becoming insolvent or going bankrupt. In addition, if an older family member dies, the family trust may also prevent challenges to the family member’s will from interfering with the operation of the family trust.
