We have a variety of techniques of using family trusts to facilitate financial and tax planning for different objectives, including:

  • tax minimization through income splitting of investment income and capital gains with family members with little or no income
  • multiple access to lifetime capital gains exemption
  • deferral of capital gains
  • tax-loss selling
  • creditor proofing of assets and income
  • retaining control over assets
  • US estate plans for US-situs properties through the use of discretionary inter-vivo trusts

We coordinate with the client’s legal counsel to implement the trust planning, including review of any required legal documents prepared by the legal counsel.

We can also prepare or review trust tax returns that involve complex situations.

Contact us or book an appointment to find out how we can help you. We are also accessible via our E-Service.
