I have an estate where the deceased died domiciled in England and Wales. The Executors and Trustees A & B live in England and the Isle of Man respectively. C is the daughter of B so also lives in the Isle of Man. C is a beneficiary of the Will who is currently a minor and will inherit subject to her attaining the age of 21. The estate is still in the course of its administration but her inheritance is likely to the in the region of £50,000.
A has indicated that he wishes to retire as a Trustee appointing B’s wife who (also resident in the Isle of Man) in his place. B has informed me that he has registered the trust in the Isle of Man and has a letter from the Isle of Man Treasury confirming this.
What are the potential tax and compliance implications of this? Can we simply pay C’s share to B and his wife as the Trustees once the Deed of Retirement and Appointment has been completed?
