Protect your assets

Many clients don’t think a Trust would be relevant to them, however, Trusts can not only help protect assets but can also be used to ensure that your estate ultimately passes to the people you want to inherit your estate, for example, your children from a first marriage.

Our firm has the benefit of having trust specialists who can guide you through every aspect of trusts, including the following: –

  • using trusts in inheritance tax planning
  • setting up trusts, and the tax implications of doing so
  • appointing trustees, and trustees’ powers
  • making payments from trust funds or transferring assets into trust
  • administration of trusts
  • how to wind up a trust and deal with the final distribution or transfer of assets

To discuss whether a trust is suitable for you and your family please contact our Private Client team in Ayr, Thiona McQuiston 01292 281711 or Girvan, Debbie Dunlop 01465 713118. “
