Why it is essential for an investor to form a trust
If you have investment properties, then when the second of you and your spouse dies, up to 38% of their value will go in tax and that is payable in cash. The answer is to hold them in a trust.
The tax is made up of Estate Duty (20%) and CGT (18%). But when you die, the trust does not die and those dreaded taxes do not kick in.
