Domestic Trust Reporting Rules 2023 - 21 February 2023 (On Demand)


Most domestic trusts that are required to file income tax returns are required to comply with new financial reporting and disclosure rules from the 2021/22 income year.

These new rules were introduced at the same time as the increase in the top marginal tax rate to 39%, and are intended to provide Inland Revenue with information to determine whether the 39% tax rate is working effectively, and to assist Inland Revenue to understand and monitor how trusts are operating.

This webinar considers the application of the new financial reporting and disclosure rules, including which trusts these new rules apply to (including the application of the new rules to estates), what information is required to be provided, and how that information is required to be provided.

This webinar will also examine common transactions which give rise to settlements and distributions, including trusts that hold family homes and holiday homes.
