A trust is a legal arrangement that holds assets for the benefit of others. A trust may be created for the financial benefit of a spouse, children or perhaps a charity.

  • The person who creates the trust is the settlor.
  • The person who holds the assets for the benefit of another is the trustee.
  • The people who benefit from the trust are the beneficiaries.

There are many types of trust arrangements available. Some are written into a will; others are standalone trusts. Each type of trust is taxed differently and some may reduce inheritance tax liabilities.
