    If you invest in managed funds through a trust do you lose the benefit of any input credits?

    What input credits are there in a managed fund investment ?

    You don't mean imputation credits do you ? If so, yes, you do get to distribute imputation credits - if they are available.

    Thanks Sim. I wasn't too sure of what the proper term was but you have cleared the muddy waters for me somewhat.

    Imputation credits and share investments would be another good topic for an article. Would be useful to include comments about how this works for trusts too. I'll make a note of this for our ideas list.
