I'm an individual trustee and received this email today from the weekly digest and bulletin:
Trusts and estates registration service
9:18am, 10 July 2017 The Trusts and Estates online registration services have been added to allow individuals to register their trust or complex estate.
Register your trust or estate with the HM Revenue and Customs online service, this replaces form 41G(Trusts).
When I tried to register my trust which is already registered via 41G and has a SA account, I got into a nightmare maze of confusion:
- tried to register using my existing government gateway account for this trust - message is 'already registered for government services, create a new account!!
- created a new account, follow the links to register new trust or estate, and get to page that only talks about estates.
Come back in 3 months I think.
Is there a deadline to register existing trusts, and why does an existing trust with SA account need to be registered anyway?
