A Family Trust allows for the
distribution of income to any family member.
However, if the trust has a loss it is
trapped inside of the trust and needs to be funded with after-tax income.
This is because the use of this type
of trust does not push down losses to a taxpayer to claim against their PAYG
As an example, if
the trust holds a property where the rent is insufficient to cover interest and
other costs– so it's negatively geared– then
the loss is trapped inside.
The bank and other suppliers still
need to be paid but this is achieved without getting a tax deduction.
Any accumulated losses in the trust
are available to offset future profits, including a capital gain.
This issue can be adjusted, with the
correct advice and implementation, to allow any negative gearing to effectively
flow down to the taxpayer.
The end result being that the losses
will be offset against PAYG tax to improve cash flow.
