Owning your house through a Trust

Owning your house through a Trust.

A common question is whether it makes sense for your company or your family trust to be the owner of your home.

This is a very complex area of legislation that is currently under review and is in a state of flux. Burman recommends you consult an expert who is up to date with regards to changes.

Whether you want to sell your residential property or buy a new real estate investment, a house or an apartment, your Property Angel is here to help you find your eclectic home.

Although there may be reasons other than tax considerations why owning your house through a trust may be appropriate in certain circumstances, it is not generally a tax efficient solution from a capital gains perspective.

The primary residence exclusion is only available to natural persons and not to companies or trusts.

The lower inclusion rate for natural persons (40%) compared to that for trusts and companies (80%) means that in all cases the effective tax rate on capital gains will be lowest in the hands of an individual.
