"Did you know? Trusts may get special tax treatment if they are for someone disabled or children who’ve lost a parent."

Godwins Solicitors LLP can help you manage and safeguard money, property, land and other assets for your own future, as well as for your family or other beneficiaries. You may wish to pass on assets to your children or grandchildren during your lifetime, or under your Will when you’re gone. Trusts can also manage assets for you and others if you’re facing a disability or health issue. Trusts can be used to establish a charity, run a business or hold investments. We can also advise on the use of trusts for potential death benefits of life policies and pensions. It’s important you obtain good advice on the different types of trusts, in particular their tax benefits and consequences, to ensure they suit your circumstances.

Godwins Solicitors LLP can also act as professional trustees to administer trusts on your behalf. Godwins Solicitors LLP can advise on:

  • The most appropriate form of trust for your requirements.
  • Administration of trusts and acting as a professional trustee.
  • Powers and duties of trustees.
  • Disputes between trustees and beneficiaries.
  • Termination of trusts and the tax implications.

Our team includes members of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners. This will ensure you benefit from up to date knowledge of the latest tax reliefs and know your adviser is subject to a strict Code of Conduct.
