I have been instructed by the trustees of a Discretionary Will Trust that contains a Prudential Investment Bond. They would like to lend the total contents of the trust to two of the discretionary beneficiaries. This would result in the Bond being assigned to their names, and them owing the value back to the trust.
Would such an arrangement create a capital gains tax liability for the trust, or indeed any other negative implications?
