New rules require all UK express trusts and some non-UK trusts to register with HMRC. This includes non-taxable trusts unless the trust is specifically excluded. The deadline for trusts created or becoming registrable after 6 October 2020 is within 90 days of the trust being created, or becoming registrable, or 1 September 2022 (whichever is later).
Naomi Wells and Vanessa Clark of Azets presented a Tax Faculty webinar (available to all ICAEW members) on 13 July 2022. The webinar covered the new requirements and the exclusions. A recording and a copy of the slides are available to all members.
