Winding Up a Trust 2022

Winding Up a Trust 2022
Add to CPD Planner


This webinar was first broadcast in November 2021. It has been rescheduled for a second live broadcast due to popular demand.

The landscape in relation to trusts has changed dramatically in recent years and adding to the complexity is the new Trusts Act 2019 which came into force on 30 January 2021. There will often be occasions where it will be in the best interests of your clients to review current arrangements. This webinar will take a practical approach in considering when it might be appropriate to bring a trust to an end, the process for this, common pitfalls, and the integration of a trust with longer term life and succession planning arrangements.

This webinar will include:

  • Reasons for winding up a trust
  • The means of winding up a trust and the practical implications of each route
  • The trustees’ obligations and potential liabilities and how they should be dealt with
  • Practical issues and potential pitfalls that can arise on winding up a trust.
