Trustee and executor services
Managing a trust can be complicated and time-consuming. We can take the burden of the necessary administrative obligations by being appointed as either sole or co-trustee to a trust or settlement, dealing with all annual tax compliance, filing accounts and returns, and organising payment of all taxes.
Once we have determined your trust’s objectives, we ensure regular reviews of your trust alongside legislation to ensure its tax efficiency, highlighting where strategies could maximise any available tax reliefs.
Where issues can be difficult for any family, our executorship services takes on the administrative responsibilities of will and estate management, identifying all assets and liabilities and dealing with them in accordance with the instructions of the deceased. If necessary we can be appointed as executor by the will or administrators of the estate by the executors.
