Offshore trusts have become a key feature of family planning, with many families emigrating abroad and with others seeking to hold offshore value as a hedge against the rand. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the basic tax implications of forming offshore trusts, generating offshore trust revenues and the subsequent uses of those funds by trust beneficiaries. Both tax and basic administrative impacts will be addressed.
