Trusts & Gifting

Trusts provide a structured, tax-efficient way to manage and pass on your assets.

Protect your family’s assets the way you want

Trusts can help reduce estate taxes, making them an effective tool in your estate planning strategy.

A Trust is a legal structure, allowing you to place and manage assets within them. Not only can trusts reduce estate taxes, but they can also save time.

Unlike a will, trusts usually avoid probate, a legal and often lengthy process. By using a trust, your assets can often be passed on quickly. Certain types of trusts may not be considered part of your estate, meaning fewer taxes are applied to your assets.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Greater control: You can specify who gets what and when. Trusts provide far greater control than passing on assets via a will, allowing you to be more precise with the terms.
  • Legacy protection: A correctly set up trust can protect your wealth from being used in a way that you had not intended, such as paying off debts to creditors.

Trusts are designed to give you a greater level of control over your estate and ensure that it is as tax efficient as it can b. Ultimately, this means that you can pass on your estate in a way that you intended, ensuring your loved ones are taken care of when you are gone.

Be aware that trusts are a complex area. Working with a professional is advised to ensure trusts are set up correctly.

At Holborn, we work with our legal partners to help you find the right type of trust based on your needs. We take care of all the complex work and assist you in setting up the trust. So, you can be sure that your assets are in safe hands and securely managed.
