Traditionally, Discretionary Trusts (commonly referred to as Family Trusts) have been a very useful vehicle for tax purposes and in many instances have been used primarily for this purpose.
However, it light of recent legislative proposals that may be seen to affect the tax effectiveness of a Family Trust, many new businesses may not feel that a Family Trust structure is as attractive as it once was and therefore may be reluctant to consider it due to recent legislative proposals that are being considered such as:
A proposal to tax Family Trusts in the same way and at the same rate as Companies
A proposal to tax all income earned through a Family Trust or Companies the same way that personal income is taxed where the majority of the income in the Family Trust has been earned from personal exertion from one source.
Regardless of these proposed changes, the fact remains that a Family Trust does a whole lot more than just provide tax related advantages. The Family Trust structure needs to be considered holistically and together with all the other benefits of a Family Trust.
