Application of Attribution Rules for Trusts

Presenters : Cheryl Howard


Overview

Attribution Rules, Deeming Provisions, and Anti-Avoidance Provisions all reference this topic. This is probably the most misunderstood tax clause for both tax practitioners and trust accountants when computing the tax charge, determining the appropriate taxpayer, and accounting for it in the trust’s Annual Financial Statements. Section 7 overrides the provisions of Section 25B, making the attribution rules the primary compulsory rule. Benefits accrue or are deemed to accrue to the donor or funder in terms of donations or interest-free or soft loans (lower than market-related interest rates) and are calculated and attributed to the donor or funder before any other vesting or distributions to beneficiaries.
