Thanks Chris.I guess there are different ways of setting up trusts.Not quite sure how ours is set up.Am I correct in saying that if anything is changed in regard as to how it operates it needs to be done in the presence of the lawyer or in our case now ,the accountant who administers it
Didnt rate you poor service sorry.just forgot to change the rating.
We used to have our lawyer as a trustee but have recently changed the administering of the trust to our new accountant as we moved towns.Our children also receive an annual tax refund from it.Hw does that work?
Yes I get that but how is it that they get a refund? And would any changes to the running or set up of the trust have to be done in the presence of the accountant and my husband,as I think somethings have been changed but I have not had a meeting with them both.
Thankyou for all your assistance.This is a great service you provide.
