Tees can guide you through the process of setting up, running and managing a Trust.

What is a trust?

A trust is a way of planning for the future and providing protection. You can use a trust to pass your wealth on to your children or grandchildren, to pay for school fees or a care home, or as part of your tax planning. Our trusts specialists can help you use, and manage, trusts effectively. We'll make sure you're on the right side of their (often complex) rules and regulations!

Every trust has trustees, to make sure the trust operates appropriately. This can be tougher than it sounds, as the trustees have to stay on top of a shifting legal and taxation landscape. We also provide practical support and advice for trustees. So, if you need help running a trust after it's set up you can rely on Tees.

How we can help you

We know that trusts can be difficult and daunting. So our job is to make the process as simple for you as possible. We do this from the start –  we’ll explain your options in plain English, and talk through your goals and any concerns.

On a practical level, we can set up a trust that will do exactly what you need it to do. We’ll also take care of the trustees, making sure they get clear, tailored advice on how to fulfil their duties under the trust.

Our bespoke trusts service

Our service is geared towards matching your circumstances – we can take on as much or as little of the work as you need. So you might want us to set up and manage the whole trust, or just to advise on one part, such as:

  • trust accounts and tax returns 
  • tax efficient ways of making trust distributions 
  • ensuring trustees meet deadlines, such as paying tax 

We also work closely with our financial team, which includes investment advisors and tax accountants. This way we cover all the angles and make sure your trust is managed efficiently.
