Many trust structures do not achieve intended tax-efficient and asset-protection strategies. Bamford, trust-streaming and other amendments to existing trusts need to be carefully considered. Sometimes they are unnecessary. CGT and stamp duty (Duties Act 2000) penalties for mistakes are substantial. John advises on how to avoid such pitfalls.
