    If I am neither shareholder nor director of a corporate trustee of a trust that owns property that I rent, is that sufficient not to raise flags re interest deductibility for the trust or are there more things that can be done ?

    Is it possible for me to buy land, build a property on it then transfer it to a trust then rent it from the trust as per above ? I am figuring if the trust earns income to buy the land and build the property on it that it will be up for 45% tax and/or div 7a problems, is that right ?

    If I am neither shareholder nor director of a corporate trustee of a trust that owns a serviced apartment with X number of days free use, can the director give me authority to use the free use days and is there any issue with fbt ?

    Thanks in advance for any help
