Trust Registration Cheshire 

In line with new government legislation the majority of Trusts must now be registered with HMRC. The Trust Registration Service has been put in place by government in order to strengthen compliance with anti-money laundering regulations. Full details can be found on the HMRC Trust registration page. 
A Trust must be registered within 90 days of completion, in order to comply with HMRC’s requirements and ensure no penalties arise. 
Choose a Lead Trustee. We recommend that this is the person who set up the Trust, or their spouse / partner if this person is no longer available. Alternatively, if neither of these individuals is available, we are happy to talk to you about who should be chosen as the Lead Trustee. All Trustees remain equal, but the Lead Trustee takes on the administrative role as the main point of contact for HMRC. 
The Lead Trustee can register the trust themselves here. 
The Lead Trustee is also responsible for ensuring the register is updated each time there are any relevant changes. For example to Trust assets, Trustees or Beneficiaries. 
For those unable to access the registration process online or requiring assistance in registering a trust we can help.
