Trusts

Having a trust in place is a great way to protect your future and the ones you love.

Unfortunately, it’s estimated that around 75% of existing trusts will not hold up in court as they are outdated or not correctly administered. If you are concerned about the administration of your trust or would like to discuss how a trust will keep your assets with their rightful owner, contact a Haven adviser today.

Trust Establishment

A Haven adviser will meet with you to understand your business or situation in which you would like to implement a trust. Once we know your needs, we will prepare the initial trust establishment documentation including:

  • Trust deed
  • Memorandum
  • Initial trust minutes
  • Apply for an IRD number for the trust
  • Liaise with your legal representative and bank (where required) regarding asset transfers to the trustees

Trust Review

For a trust to remain established, it must be regularly reviewed and updated. You should contact your adviser with any major milestone such as new additions to the family and large purchases. If you are concerned about the administration of your trust or would like to be assured of your trust validity, we can carry out a complete trust review and provide a report of where your trust is at and where it should be. We can also coordinate and prepare the documentation needed to bring your trust up to speed.

We can help by:

  • Assisting with your annual meetings.
  • Documenting decisions and actions taken by trustees.
  • Guiding trustees in effective decision making.
  • Ensuring your trust complies with relevant legislation.
