Hi all, I have about $450K equity and some company income to invest. I'm looking to start investing more in property and wanted to set up trust accounts; 1 for each property each with its own corporate trustee and with the ability to offset losses and income to reduce tax on all investments. My (limited) understanding of how it would work would be that I would be the personal trustee of a 'master trust' which would own all the shares of the corporate trustees (which would each manage a trust owning an investment property). The master trust would not have employees, not own any trading businesses, no employees etc. There would also be a bucket company owned by the master trust if the income exceeds what I can earn tax effectively. This bucket company would simply receive excess income (that cant be better distributed) and would be the company to take out loans etc to buy the property. This was a method described to me, my questions would be: 1) Is this a safe way to organise trusts and companies for asset protection and tax purposes? 2) How would I safely start off the trust account, obviously it needs funds from somewhere and just starting out I wouldnt be able to get a loan unless it was a private loan. Would I loan it money from my equity/ sell one of my properties to it etc? 3) Wouldn't the above structure be dangerous as the bucket company could easily become insolvent if it is taking out loans and only getting residual income? Please excuse my ignorance, any help would be appreciated!
