Specialist Trust Solicitors in Manchester and London

Trusts are used to hold money and other assets on behalf of a beneficiary or group of beneficiaries. Trusts can be for business, family or charitable purposes, and come in many different forms. Our specialist trust solicitors can give you advice regarding which type of trusts is best for your needs.

How Trusts Work

The first step will be for a settlor to decide the type and extent of the trust and set out what will be included in it. This can be money, property, land or investments or a combination of all of them. Next, the settlor will specify who the beneficiaries are, these are the people who will gain from the trust. Finally, the settlor will appoint the trustees who will manage the trust.

There are many different types of trusts available, and our specialist solicitors can offer advice and support in helping you decide which one best fits your needs. We can help you pick between:

  • Bare Trusts
  • Interest in Possession Trusts
  • Discretionary Trusts
  • Accumulation Trusts
  • Settlor-interested Trusts
  • Mixed and Non-resident Trusts

One example of a common way trusts are used is where parents hold money in a bare trust on behalf of their children. These allow the children access to the funds once they reach the age of 18 but can also allow the trustees to give sums early as and when they feel it is appropriate.


Each type of trusts comes with its own specific levels of taxation, and these will need to be paid by either the trustees or the beneficiaries. The main types of tax that is often payable on trusts are:

  • Income Tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Inheritance Tax

Our specialist solicitors can offer advice on what is a very complicated area of rules regarding tax and trusts.

Setting Up Trusts

Unfortunately, setting up a trust is a complicated process, made more complicated by the need for the legal wording to be precise. Our specialist solicitors can draw up a trust which will not only meet your needs but will help avoid costly mistakes down the line.

Most frequent questions and answers

A trust is a legal arrangement where one or more people or a company (trustees) controls money or assets (trust property) which they must use for the benefit of one or more people (beneficiaries).

Trusts are used to support someone who can’t manage their money, so that their needs are looked after, even when you aren’t able to help them; or to make sure that your own money is used to look after you if you can’t look after yourself

Trusts are complex, and unique to your needs. Additionally, tax rules for trusts differ between trust types. To ensure you meet your ever-changing legal obligations, it is advised you seek professional advice.
