You can trust Nottingham’s Private Client team to be sensitive and to explain things clearly.

If you want to make a trust, we also offer a full trust service, from setting up a trust, managing a trust (including ensuring all compliance requirements are met, such as helping with FATCA, the Common Reporting Standard (‘CRS’), anti-money laundering regulations and the trust registration requirements), advising trustees on the options available to them, drafting trust accounts, making distributions from a trust and dealing with all the necessary tax reporting along the way, from annual trust tax returns to inheritance tax reporting on a trust ending.

Our Nottingham solicitors can help you make a will to fit your personal circumstances, whatever they may be.
