Why should you set up a trust?

Set up a Trust for succession planning


A Trust survives the death of the person who sets up the Trust. Through a Trust, you have a reliable way to ensure that your heirs will enjoy their inheritance without incurring debt in the form of Estate Duty. The value of your estate is also decreased. Any property owned by the Trust upon your death is excluded from the calculation of Estate Duty.

Set up a Trust for incapacity


Where the beneficiaries of a Trust are incapable of holding assets due to incapacity (mentally or physically), a Trust can be set up to hold assets.

Set up a Trust for sequestration and creditors


In the event of your sequestration, a Trust can be set up to hold and protect your assets. Your assets can also not be attached by creditors that might have judgements against you.

Set up a Trust for the security of minors


In the event that you die without a Testamentary Trust, any heirs under the age of eighteen (18) are unable to inherit any assets from your estate. The inheritance of such minors is subsequently paid into the Guardian’s Fund. A Trust will ensure easy access to funds.
