Accepting an invitation to be a trustee is not for the fainthearted. Graham Smith, partner at Roythornes, and acknowledged expert in taxation and trusts, suggests you should think about it at least six times before saying yes! If, having thought about it, you do say yes, you will need to spend some time investigating and understanding what your duties are.
If you don't have time to spend hours reading learned tomes, this podcast is a good starting point. It is a short introduction to "The Model Trustee", a talk given by Graham (in his own inimitable style and in a tweed suit) at our recent Down on the Farm: Partnerships and Trusts and getting it right... seminar. The number of farmers and professionals who attended the seminar is testimony to how seriously people take their trustee responsibilities.
Enjoy the podcast. And if you have any questions, or we can help in any way on trust matters, get in touch with Graham directly on 01638 564130.
