What is Trust ?

The trust is registered under the Trusteeship Act of India 1882 and provides for the provision of trusts. A trust is an arrangement in which the owner of the trust transfers property to the trust. Here, the purpose of the transfer of ownership is to benefit a third party. Property is transferred to the trust from the trustee stating that the property will be held by the trustee for the trustee.

To enjoy the benefits of trust, one must meet certain conditions and the registration process is one of the prerequisites. Prior to registration, the trust deed must be made on a closed non -judicial paper. Each state has set its own stamp duty rate.

What are the Benefits of Trust Registration?

A charitable trust is established for the common purpose of engaging in charitable activities while collecting certain benefits for himself, his heirs and successors.

Another major reason to set up a registered trust is to get tax exemption. This charitable trust is a non -profit organization and to use all of this additional income, the charitable trust must have a legal entity.

Registered trusts benefit the poor and the general public through the implementation of fair charitable activities.

By registering a trust, compliance is maintained under the provisions of the Indian Trustee Act 1882, which directly protects the trust from legal barriers.

Trusts can be used to keep certain assets, such as land / interests in family businesses, that are inappropriate or impractical for settlers to divide between individuals. Using a trust allows these people to profit from an asset even if they do not own it. The trust will also help maintain the capital value of these assets for potential generations.

Since the legal rights to such assets pass from the giver to the trustee when they “remain”, therefore, there is no change of ownership when the giver dies, thus avoiding the need for a will under the trustee’s assets.

In addition, the giving of a will is in the public domain, while a trust is a private arrangement that does not need to be registered anywhere. Using a trust will also help avoid the economic hardships that spouses sometimes experience while waiting for a will.

When a person and his or her family move abroad, this is often a unique / appropriate time to establish a tax avoidance trust in the destination country, thus protecting the family’s wealth and providing the ability to adapt to the organization. Such organizations require detailed professional advice and guidance.

Such planning should be done under the detailed professional guidance of legal experts in their country of residence / nationality.
