Umbrella Asset Trust

umbrella assets trustTHE SCENARIO

A UK resident individual owns (solely or jointly) a Portfolio of investments that can benefit from an Umbrella Assets Trust (UAT). These are usually properties, but may be anything of a capital nature. The properties may be mortgaged. The incidence of capital gains tax and income tax is a significant problem in commercial management and growth of the Portfolio. The Portfolio also carries the burden of inheritance tax on the death of its owner(s).

Using legal strategies successfully implemented for over a decade, the Portfolio can be moved, under statutory protection, into a tax free, Umbrella Asset Trust.
