Family Trust

Learn what a Family Trust is, the tax benefits of setting up a Family Trust in Australia and more.

Can a sole personal Trustee be a sole Nominated Beneficiary?

Generally speaking, no. There must be a difference between the legal person of the Trustee and the legal person of the Beneficiary to enable a Trust to exist. However it can validly be argued that in all Family Trusts, because there are General Beneficiaries as well as Nominated Beneficiaries, the answer is they can be. It is Patricia Holdings experience though that most Banks refuse to lend to a Trust where the Trustee is one and the same as the sole Nominated Beneficiary.
