Legacy Family Inheritance Trust

Legacy Family Inheritance Trust

A Discretionary Trust is a very flexible form of Trust which is used to protect assets for beneficiaries on your death. This is because it may not be the ‘right time’ for them to inherit for the following reasons:

  • Bankruptcy
  • Divorce
  • Disability
  • Care costs
  • Generational Inheritance Tax.

In these Trusts, the trustees have discretion over how, when and for whose benefit to use all of the capital and income of the Trust fund. You leave instructions for the trustees as to how the assets are to be used.

What risks can a Legacy Family Inheritance Trust potentially avoid?

Bankruptcy: If the beneficiary of your Will is bankrupt or in danger of becoming bankrupt, the risk is that a gift from your estate might be paid directly to the beneficiary’s creditors and not actually benefit those you wanted it to.

Divorce: The assets left from your estate to the beneficiary might pass to a former spouse rather than the person it was intended for.

Disability: If a beneficiary is disabled in some way and needs help managing the assets left to them or they are in receipt of state benefits, the assets left to them may be misspent or used to reduce or replace the state benefits provided.

Generational Inheritance Tax: The assets do not fall directly into the beneficiary’s estate, further taxation charges will not be applicable to these assets on the beneficiary’s death.

After my initial enquiry about making my will I had a phone call from a member of LegacyWills team, namely Siobhan O’Toole.She explained everything in simple language so that I knew exactly what I had to do. She was very patient when answering my questions, which made me decide to go ahead with using LegacyWills.

I found the advisor extremely helpful, explaining clearly any points which I was unsure about. I received my Will some days later and was pleased that the company followed up to check that I was happy with it. I did not feel pressured in any way and I would recommend this company to anyone wishing for a straightforward and efficient service.
