Trustees, Be Aware!

If your trust doesn’t expressly exclude foreign persons as potential beneficiaries, you will be forced to pay surcharge duty and land taxes applicable to foreign purchasers, even if it does not name any actual foreign persons as beneficiaries.

The transition period for amending the terms of your trust deed to exclude foreign persons expires at midnight on 31 December 2020.

Don’t get caught out!
