Trust Tax Returns in Melbourne

A Trust is an obligation which allows a person or other entity to hold the property for the benefit of beneficiaries. The trustee is responsible for managing the Trust’s tax affairs. Here at eFirm in Melbourne, we can provide all the necessary assistance for making and maintaining a Trust, and whether a Trust is right for your circumstances.

Your Assets

By putting an asset in the trust, you do not own the assets under your name. The assets are legally controlled by the trustee. You have the power to control those assets and set out who receives the income arising from the assets.
