Umbrella Remuneration Trust


Under UK law, the LaingRose Umbrella Remuneration Trust (URT) allows businesses to provide incentives for its suppliers, customers or creditors – and claim relief against corporation tax / income tax as an allowable business expense.

Using legal strategies successfully implemented for more than two decades, the business can fund an incentive plan, using statutory protection, to a tax-free, trust-based environment.

An interesting by-product of the Remuneration Trust is that there is no liability to corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax or national insurance – on any trust contributions or trust growth.
