A trust is a way of managing money or other assets such as land or property, for you, your family and others who you would like to benefit.
You can set up a trust for several reasons, for example to:
- Manage personal injury compensation and protect means-tested benefits with a Personal Injury Trust
- Protect family assets for future generations
- Safeguard assets for vulnerable loved ones
- Minimise Inheritance Tax Liabilities
- Save for care fees
- Pass your assets to a loved one during your lifetime or when you die
It is important to appoint a specialist solicitor when setting up a trust. They can help you choose the best type of trust that suits your needs, advise on any tax savings with your trust and ensure your trust does not conflict with your Will.
