Taxation Planning – Diverting Income
Diverting income is another widely used and effective means of minimising your taxation liability. Using a Discretionary (Family) Trust can prove to be very effective business / investment structure, for diverting taxable income to beneficiaries that are in a low or lower tax environment.
A discretionary trust means that the beneficiaries are discretionary. Therefore the trustee has flexibility when it comes to making the distributions as the distributions are not fixed.
Note that it is important that the trustee of the trust make the beneficiaries entitled to the trust’s income by way of a resolution by the end of the financial year.
