The use of trusts by a business owner for tax or estate planning is still misunderstood. It is important to study the different aspects of a trust to determine whether it could be the appropriate vehicle used to hold some of your assets. The tax and other advantages that come from setting up a trust should be considered as a whole with a mid to long-term perspective. In order to benefit fully from these advantages, we recommend obtaining the advice of an expert as early as possible in the corporate life of your business. This advice should not be limited only to the creation phase of a trust assets or even in the event of a death.
