Are trusts still relevant today? The two main reasons why people favour the creation of trusts are;

  • asset protection and
  • business continuity.

Under most circumstances the assets of a trust are protected from creditors and trusts outlive their trustees.  

These two reasons make trusts attractive. However, the taxation and accounting treatment of trusts require special considerations that every business accountant and tax practitioner needs to be aware of.
