We have recently paid off our mortgage and are looking at a different way of investing/managing our money. I have a full-time job plus a business registered as a company. My husband operates as a sole trader. Our taxes are already high, so we are thinking of setting up a family trust to invest my company profits (do you think it's a good choice?). What I don’t understand is how to move money from my company to the family trust. I imagine it can be done as a ‘loan’, but does it mean I need to move the money back to the company each year before June 30th for accounting purposes? This would not be ideal, as we were thinking of investing in shares, which only makes sense to do long-term. If the money is ‘gifted’ to the trust, will the trust have to distribute the money that year as it’ll be considered ‘profits’? I guess, what I’m asking for is there a way to move company money to the trust without having to return it to the company each year at the end of the financial year OR without having to distribute that money each year? We are still researching the topic, so any insights/tips would be greatly appreciated!
