TRUST TAX RETURN.

Trust is mostly an asset protection entity that also provides many tax benefits. It is basically a fiduciary/trust arrangement that allows a third entity to hold the assets for the beneficiary (ies). There are many different trust structures.

 

The parties to a trust include trustee, beneficiary, settler & appointer (if applicable). Various different trusts provide various benefits. A trust tax return will hence vary depend on the kind of trust formed and also on the extent and extensiveness of recordkeeping, compliance and bookkeeping required. Also, the business activity or investment activity determines the benefits associated with forming and running the activity via a trust structure.

Why do we need to file trust tax return?

If there is any income generated from the Trust’s activities, all the income is generally distributed among beneficiaries and hence the trustee is required to prepare and lodge tax returns to the Australian Taxation Office. So basically, the trustee is responsible for managing the trust’s tax affairs and registering the trust in the tax system, lodging trust tax returns. The beneficiaries are generally liable to pay the tax.

We can help prepare the trust tax return, carry out the required bookkeeping complete relevant schedules and distributions in accordance with the deed or based on the minutes. It is difficult to provide a fixed fee for trust tax returns, however if you get in touch with us, we should be able to pretty much advise about our fee over the phone.

Minimise your tax to maximise your profit.

Many of our clients have minimised their tax and secured their retirement future by investing in their own Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF).

Superannuation is essentially a retirement savings vehicle that also supports the retirement dreams and quality of life of all future retirees. The impact of a poorly performing fund can have a significant effect – often leading to an uncertain financial future.

So talk to I Merhi & Co now about securing your future with a SMSF.

The ATO and APRA (the two primary regulators in the industry) have placed a regulatory burden on SMSFs due to their long list of requirements. This has deterred many from enjoying the vast advantages to be gained from SMSFs, notably, control of their own money and retirement destiny.

Our Superannuation specialists remove the worry of this regulatory burden from our clients, allowing them the options to make more informed choices.
