Trusts are routinely wound up. Anecdotal evidence suggests that currently a larger number than usual of trusts are being wound up due to concerns about ageing trusts and trustees, intergenerational family dynamics and concerns regarding beneficiary disclosure required by the Trusts Act 2019.
Regardless of the reason for winding up a trust, there are a number of important considerations that needs to be taken into account.
This webinar will address how trusts are wound up together with matters that need to be taken into account when a trust is brought to an end including liability and indemnity considerations.
This webinar, which will conclude with a question and answer section, will utilise a check list, a case study and a precedent deed to bring forward the vesting date, deed of distribution and trustee resolutions to demonstrate matters to canvas when winding up a trust, how a trust is wound up and what documents are required.
Topics covered will include:

Trusts are regularly wound up. However, in the absence of formal guidelines, the steps required are not always clear. This webinar will highlight matters to take into consideration to ensure that the trustees adopt a suitable decision making process, that any risks to trustees are identified and managed and that all trust and tax obligations are attended to before a trust is brought to an end.
This webinar is targeted at all practitioners at all levels but will be of particular interest to practitioners who act as or advise trustees.
