Transfer of business into UK succession trust
This matter involved advising a UK resident and domiciled entrepreneur on settling shares in his trading business into a UK trust to allow family succession, including:
- the application of business property relief
- the use of hold-over relief or Entrepreneurs’ Relief
- the tax implications of restructuring the companies settled and when this should happen
- the effect of links with companies not settled on trust but owned by the settlor
