Establish a Trust in the UK: Trust Registration Service for UK and Non-UK Clients

Why to register a trust structure? Trusts are becoming increasingly popular. They have been employed for many years by those wishing to pass on their assets to children or other family members and skirt the heavy penalties of inheritance tax, or to hold assets in the trust until a family member is 18 years old, or simply cannot be trusted with the full responsibility of a large amount of money.

They are now finding favour with a wider audience, though, as their flexibility is becoming a real bonus in terms of company formation and management. Recently proposed rules by the government and HMRC regarding full disclosure of beneficiaries and owners of UK private companies designed to combat the use of nominee officers have led many to turn to registered trusts, which can be organised in such a way that a foreign company is the main beneficiary. This should offer continued anonymity, but this is just one advantage of a registered trust.

A duly established trust can manage and run a company and the beneficiary can then be named as an overseas party, which allows individuals to streamline their tax affairs and reduce their tax bill accordingly. This has proved useful for high net worth individuals and small business owners alike, as a trust can be used for something as simple as income shifting or as complex as managing a multinational corporation.

Trusts can be relatively simple, such as a bare trust. These hold assets in the name of a trustee, but the beneficiary can request all of the income and capital, as long as they're of legal age and sound mind. Discretionary trusts and non-resident trusts are much more complex in terms of set-up and their tax obligations, but if they're implemented correctly they can have a major impact on your tax bill. A combination of registered trusts in the UK and abroad can help eliminate many tax bills altogether.

If you're thinking of registering a trust either in the UK or overseas, then Coddan Ltd can help with expert advice and a one-stop service for your trust registration. So get in touch today and let us show you how to reorganise your financial affairs in the best possible way to save you money.

 

Online UK Trust Establishment, When & How to Use a UK Registered Trust, the Benefits of a UK Trust Start-Up

Setting Up a UK Trust

Benefits of UK trust registration with Coddan Ltd: registering a trust in the current economic climate is not without its risks, so you need to be sure you are getting your own commercial venture off to the best possible start. At Coddan Ltd, our UK and offshore trust registration agents are experienced and highly knowledgeable when it comes to registering new trusts in the UK and low-tax countries, & the benefits of UK trust registration with Coddan Ltd are numerous. For a fixed price, we ensure that your new trust is registering within hours. However, we go much further by advising you on a range of issues related to creating as a trust. We can help with everything from UK trusts registration, arranging your tax affairs to setting up a business bank account, so you can start doing business with peace of mind.

Register a Trust in the UK or Abroad

Establish a Trust in the UK or Abroad

A UK established trust or a trust registered in a low tax jurisdiction can offer fantastic savings, protection from tax and a remarkably accommodating way to manage your financial affairs. So if you're considering registering a trust to help you organise your financial life, provide for your family or even manage your company, Coddan Ltd can help.

Officially, a trust is a legal arrangement that allows people or a company to control the assets placed within the trust, which then must be used and provided to the beneficiaries. Trusts have long been used as a means to provide for children and to skirt inheritance tax, but their remarkable flexibility means they are becoming increasingly popular as tools to protect other assets and even to run companies with a certain degree of anonymity and protection from HMRC.

Registering a UK trust is a great option on its own, but Coddan Ltd can help take the process one step further and register a trust in low tax jurisdictions around the world. This can help you take full advantage of the most streamlined structure possible for taxation purposes and make your financial dreams a reality.

A trust is a separate legal entity, even though you can act as the trustee and manage the day-to-day running. It can hold assets, own property and act in a similar fashion to a company in almost every respect. British and offshore trusts used to be the preserve of the richest members of society and they still form the cornerstone of many high-end tax structures as they allow a good deal of flexibility and can be combined with a number of overseas companies and other trusts to create an anonymous and impenetrable formation that protects your assets from tax in the UK and many other jurisdictions in which you want to do business.

As the beneficiaries can be children, family members and just about anybody else, though, and the cost of formation is coming down, more and more people are turning to trusts. So if you're interested in forming a trust in the UK, or overseas in an even more attractive tax jurisdiction, get in touch with Coddan Ltd today.

The Legal Requirements to Disclose Beneficiary Owner Details in UK and EU Companies

Benefits of UK Trust Establishment

If you're an investor who values their privacy, it may be disconcerting to learn that the UK government has decided to construct a register of beneficial owners. What this means is that if your company is registered in the UK, providing corporate contact details may not now be sufficient – in some circumstances the government will want to know the name of individual(s) who are benefiting from the company.

The concept of a beneficial owner register is being replicated across the EU, with several other countries also keen to set up similar collections of owner details. If you're considering incorporating a UK company but also wish to preserve your anonymity, take a look at some alternatives you may wish to consider.

What about a trust?

In some cases, a company's beneficiary owner can be a trust. The rules which govern privacy in respect of trusts are different to those which relate to many corporate vehicles, giving owners more control over who knows information about them. To find out more about trust formation and whether it is a suitable option for your particular circumstances, talk to Coddan for further information.

Have you looked at offshore incorporation?

A company which is registered and incorporated offshore can still trade freely within the EU, but frequently isn't subject to the same rules of disclosure which apply to organisations that are incorporated in the UK. Popular locations include the Cayman Islands, Belize and the British Virgin Islands.

Cross the pond - many states in the US, notably Delaware, have less constricting disclosure rules, which can make them an ideal location for incorporating a company where the beneficiary owner prefers their business dealings to be kept private from competitors. Coddan can assist on every aspect of US incorporation should your schedule mean that visiting Delaware would be difficult.

For entrepreneurs that want to keep their business dealings discreet, Coddan can offer a number of legal, useful solutions. To find out more about any of the options given above, or to discuss your business needs in more detail, contact Coddan promptly for a no obligation consultation.

How a UK Trust Can Help to Protect the Beneficiary Owner of a UK or EU Company

Protect the Beneficiary Owner

Many entrepreneurs prefer anonymity when it comes to details of their corporate ownership. Particularly if you don't want business rivals to know of your acquisitions and in which areas they lie, protecting your privacy can be vital.

Unfortunately, the UK government's commitment to establishing a registry of beneficial owners means that for some investors, ensuring continued anonymity is becoming problematic. If you're one of the thousands of corporate beneficiary owners who want to ensure your personal information can't be easily accessed, Coddan can offer a number of solutions.

Consider trust establishment - setting up a trust to be the beneficial owner of your company can have several advantages, including the capacity to prevent your identity being widely known. If required, Coddan can undertake all the necessary incorporation and registration work on behalf of your company, as well as advising on the best trust format to meet your needs.

Coddan can set up your trust - trust law is a complex area where specialist advice is essential in order to ensure that the trust is set up in a way which reflects your needs. Coddan has a strong track record in assisting investors with trust formation and administration both in the UK and overseas. To find out more about how they might be able to assist, why not ask for a free consultation?

Trust formation, communication and administration - if you already have a busy schedule and don't want to employ additional staff to deal with your trust administration, Coddan can help. In addition to undertaking all the work necessary to get a trust up and running, Coddan can also provide appropriate administrative support, produce relevant documents as required and act as an initial point of information for enquiries from public sector bodies and other interested parties.

When you're considering a new venture and view maintaining your privacy as a priority, setting up a trust as the beneficial owner of your company can be an excellent solution. Coddan can provide all the information you need to get a suitable trust up and running, giving you the freedom to continue your business activities away from prying eyes.

Using a UK Trust as the Shareholder of the UK or EU Company

Using a UK Established Trust

Like any other position within the corporate hierarchy, being a shareholder comes with a number of obligations and responsibilities. For many investors, particularly those with complex financial circumstances or potentially conflicting interests, setting up a trust to fulfil the shareholder function can be of real benefit in a number of different ways.

By becoming a trust beneficiary rather than a shareholder directly, many individuals are able to enjoy the benefits which share ownership brings without the constraints it often places. Detailed below are three reasons a growing number of individuals are turning to Coddan for assistance in setting up an appropriate UK trust to fulfil the shareholder function.

Privacy - the rules surrounding the disclosure of identity when it comes to trust beneficiaries are different to the information requirements of being a shareholder. In many cases business owners who wish to become shareholders but also want to prevent competitors learning of their interest in a particular company use a trust to purchase shares, enabling them to pursue their business aims anonymously.

Tax advantages - in some cases, tax can be waived if the ownership of UK company shares lies with a trust rather than an individual or an incorporated business. Coddan can provide personalised advice on the type of trust which would be suitable in specific circumstances, enabling entrepreneurs to minimise their tax burden as far as possible.

Delegate the work - if you have a busy working life and feel that you can't find time to attend shareholder meetings or undertake other shareholder responsibilities, delegating the work to trustees can be a good solution. Trustees or other skilled personnel can undertake all the necessary administrative tasks required to enable the trust to run smoothly, freeing you up for other activities.

If correctly set up and administered, using a trust as a shareholder in a UK or EU company can have many advantages. Why not book a free consultation with Coddan to see if a trust is the best option for your current situation?

If not, Coddan can offer a number of other attractive choices which allow investors to meet their objectives successfully.

Appointing Trustees as UK Company Director and Secretary

Appointing Trustees as Company Director

For many organisations, keeping the number of people involved in running them low can be one of the key factors which ensure their continued success. Particularly where a niche market is involved, a company is family-run or there are tax advantages in keeping things small, a few people are often the best ones to run the operation effectively.

Although many people view small as beautiful, having limited numbers of individuals available to fulfil legally determined corporate roles can sometimes be a challenge. Coddan can provide successful solutions to this type of issue, often by using trustees as UK company directors or company secretaries.

Effective combination of trust and company - for many entrepreneurs, incorporating a company that's owned by a trust can be a perfect solution to their situation. Trustees are allowed to assume many legally defined corporate roles, allowing considerable influence to be exerted on the company without compromising the need for accountability and separation of conflicting responsibilities.

Coddan can get the paperwork done - if you've never set up a trust before, or aren't sure which specific format is going to be most useful for your needs, Coddan can provide the expert advice you're looking for. If necessary, they can also compile the legal documentation needed to get your trust up and running, as well as deal with ongoing administrative responsibilities and legal reporting requirements. For a more comprehensive service, why not ask Coddan to incorporate your company at the same time?

First point of contact - once your trust and company are operational, you will need to ensure that a trustworthy point of contact is available to answer any legitimate queries that might be posed about your business. If your current commitments mean this might be difficult, it's worth remembering that Coddan can provide a professional response on your behalf, as well as offer a suitable UK address for documentation.

If constituted correctly, trustees can hold many positions within a company, including director and secretary. Contact Coddan now for a free consultation on how this type of arrangement may be of benefit to your current business venture.

Could a Trust Work for You?

Setting-Up a UK Trust

When considering the best way of controlling numerous business interests in a financially appealing manner, it's worth looking at the benefits which using a trust can bring. Decision making within a trust is undertaken by a small, trusted group of trustees, who work together to protect the assets and operations which fall within the trust's remit.

Typically, a trust company may be responsible for several different financial projects, perhaps including a property portfolio and multiple share interests.

Trusts are extremely versatile - trustees can undertake everything from legally managing and operating a UK bank account on behalf of the trust to holding officer appointments within the company controlled by the trust (for example, the post of director or company secretary). Many people find that the trust model provides the flexible solution they're looking for to optimise management of their affairs. Why not ask Coddan for further information on the responsibilities trustees can assume?

Privacy protected - particularly if a trust is formed to manage family financial matters or some other set of circumstances where privacy is desired, a trust can work well. Trustees can be family members and as they are legally permitted to have multiple roles within companies in which the trust has an interest, it's easier to ensure the interests of the family are upheld.

Tax and reporting advantages - setting up the right form of trust/company management structure may take time, but ultimately it can bring significant financial and operational benefits, saving a considerable amount of time and money, particularly when it comes to tax obligations. Coddan can not only undertake all the work required to get your trust up and running, they can also assist with ensuring all the necessary paperwork is completed and that regular reporting requirements are met.

Using trustees to fulfil the trust's objectives often gives greater operating freedom than undertaking various roles directly.

If you want to find out more about how a trust could simplify your financial arrangements, get in contact with Coddan for an expert, free consultation that will give you the information you need regarding the various options available.

UK Trusts vs Nominee Officers

UK Trusts vs Nominee Officers

When you're looking to start a company in the UK and want to maintain a degree of anonymity, you have a variety of options available. Two of the best ways to get to work are a UK trust and forming a company with nominated officers. Coddan Ltd can help with either type of business set-up, to help you enjoy the benefits of a tax-efficient, streamlined and cost effective structure.

So which is the best one for you?

A UK trust is an increasingly popular form of company formation, thanks in part to incoming legislation that will ensure that all beneficiaries of a company and legal owners must be disclosed. HMRC is determined to crack down on tax avoidance and there are concerns in the UK about money laundering through companies with concealed ownership.

The legislation has not yet been set in stone and is a long way from being enshrined into law, so nominee directors and shareholders with a limited company or LLP are still perfectly viable ways to set up your business. This cost-effective structure allows for overseas and UK-based business owners to avoid the limelight, as well as run their business effectively while nominee officers fulfil the official obligations.

Nominee officers and a straightforward company structure is a cost-effective approach for a new business, so it is still the most popular option.

Those seeking to "future-proof" their business, though, are turning to trust formation as an alternative business structure that offers a number of advantages and can potentially continue to offer anonymity even after the new legislation comes into force.

As part of a more complex tax structure, an overseas company can be named as the beneficiary of a trust, which seems to offer a solid response to the new legislation requiring full disclosure regarding UK firms.

Both business structures come with their own advantages and both are still valid ways to create a tax efficient business structure in the UK.

So if you're weighing up the options and want some more advice about whether to opt for a trust or a UK company with nominee directors and shareholders, get in touch with Coddan Ltd for a consultation today.

UK Trusts vs Off-Shore Trusts - Pros and Cons

Establish UK Trusts vs Off-Shore Trusts

Deciding whether to set up a trust in the UK or constitute one in an offshore location is a difficult decision to make. Each option brings its own set of benefits and issues, with the final choice usually being dependent on individual circumstances and personal preferences.

If you're currently trying to decide which type of trust is going to be best for your needs, take a look at the key advantages each can bring and how Coddan can assist in helping you decide which option is most suitable.

A stable, protected location - a major advantage of doing business in the UK is the country's political stability and the sophisticated legal protection it offers to trusts of many different types. There is minimal risk of the country destabilising and generally laws are upheld and due legal processes maintained. Reporting requirements for trusts are less onerous than those required of registered companies.

Offshore freedom - many offshore locations are as politically stable as the UK, but have fewer restrictions on the way in which trusts can operate and the number of obligations which must be met in order for the trust to be maintained. In particular, an offshore location can give greater anonymity than that usually given to UK trustees and beneficiaries.

If a UK trust would be more appropriate, Coddan can advise on ways of protecting your privacy whilst still ensuring the trust complies with all relevant reporting requirements.

Coddan can help - regardless of which location you eventually decide on, Coddan can provide the necessary expertise to ensure your trust is legally constituted and produces appropriate reports and accounts when required. Coddan can also act as an initial point of contact for any queries which are directed at the trust – a real advantage if your business activities mean you can't always be easily reached to respond.

There are pros and cons to trust formation in the UK or offshore, so obtaining appropriate expert advice is normally invaluable to inform decision making. For a free consultation to discuss what might be the most suitable trust vehicle to meet your objectives, contact Coddan now.
