Changing the terms of trusts

Recorded 9th February

Presented by William Massey QC, Pump Court Tax Chambers

Topics covered;

Why vary settlements?

- To anticipate taxable events  - e.g. vesting of capital; end of trust period

- To eliminate the problems of ‘old’ accumulation and maintenance trusts

- To add powers e.g. to accumulate income to pay IHT


Ways of varying without Court intervention

- Use of dispositive powers

- Re-settling on new trusts


Court-approved variation - Variation of Trusts Act 1958

- Extension of trust period and accumulation period

- Perpetuities and Accumulations Act 2009
