Key tax benefits under family trust

Discretion to distribute income under family or discretionary trust – A trustee has flexibility under the trust deed to distribute profits under the trust to beneficiaries and he distributes higher profits to a member on the low tax rate. Beneficiary on the top tax rate can be distributed very low or no profits giving the family best tax outcome.
