This webinar will provide an update on the latest changes to the rules affecting the taxation of trusts, such as the new reporting and disclosure requirements. It will also consider some of the taxation issues that may

Trusts are popular for holding client’s assets and investments. The Trusts Act 2019 came into force in January 2021 and has caused many clients to review their trusts and in some cases resettle them.

In addition, the webinar will highlight recent amendments to the Income Tax Act 2007 that affect trusts. For example, the new disclosure and reporting requirements.
Upon satisfactory completion of this activity you will be:
- Updated on tax treatment of trusts
- Able to identify the tax implications of resettling trusts
- Be aware of recent legislative changes and how these affect the tax treatment of trusts
