Over the last few years, there have been many developments in the law of trusts. While some are more about the operation of trusts – and therefore, about Trust law; other developments have been about the Taxation of Trusts. In this session, we consider issues that look at the taxation of trusts, but also issues that involve the operation of trusts and how that may affect the tax practitioner. This session is for practitioners who are at an “intermediate to Advanced” stage in their careers.
