Testamentary Trusts

A Testamentary Trust Will provides a more flexible structure for your beneficiaries to inherit

Testamentary Trusts (Flexible Wills)

Testamentary Trust Wills (also called a Flexible Will) have a number of benefits. In deciding what to do with your estate, it is important to consider not only who will benefit from your estate, but how they will benefit.

A Flexible Will that includes a testamentary trust, will help with:

  • Asset protection, and
  • Tax minimisation.

A Testamentary Trust Will provides a more flexible structure for your beneficiary to inherit. Each beneficiary can choose, at the time of your death, whether or not they want to take advantage of having their inheritance placed into a trust. If they choose not to adopt this approach, the Flexible Will simply operates like a traditional will, and each beneficiary can just choose to take their inheritance without having it invested into a trust.

Testamentary Trusts or Flexible Wills

At Mason Lawyers, when someone wants to make a Will, we consider a person’s unique circumstances on a case-by-case basis.

A person’s estate can be small or large, complex or straightforward. Similarly, a person can have a very small family or a large and complicated family.

These factors, as well as any insurance considerations or potential disputes, are considered when making an individualised estate plan. 

Our experienced estate planning lawyers can help you decide whether your beneficiaries would benefit from a Testamentary Trust Will.
