Financial security is a common goal of Canadian families in every walk of life. But to achieve this goal, where do you begin? The first step is to acquire the knowledge you need for developing a viable plan.
The fifth edition of The Family Trust Guide provides 60 pages of discussion in straightforward language that can help your clients more knowledgeably consider the tax and estate planning benefits of creating a family trust and be better prepared to discuss their plans with you, their tax advisor.
As your clients read through the six chapters, they will learn how they can use a family trust to:
- save tax

- save probate fees/taxes
- hold assets for minors
- protect assets
- organize the family’s affairs
- hold family assets after their death, and
- increase confidentiality of their financial affairs.
In addition to its easy-to-understand examples, the Guide includes a Checklist of Instructions for the Preparation of a Family Trust to help your clients organize their thoughts and documents before meeting with you to discuss their plans.
