Why you should get POP Business
to lodge your trust tax returns

A Trust is a legal entity that is required to lodge an annual Trust Tax Return which reports the financial summary of the Trust’s activities to the Australian Taxation Office.

Generally, a Trust will distribute the profit to its beneficiaries, with the income reportable in the beneficiary Returns.

A Trust is great for tax minimisation as you can distribute income in accordance with the Trust Deed to beneficiaries in a tax-effective manner.

Trust Tax Return:
Frequently asked questions

A Trust tax return is prepared based upon the financial statements. If you need the accounts reconciled the team at POP can attend to this.

Once the financial transactions are reconciled and the financial statements have been prepared (which will include the accounting distributions and beneficiary accounts), the Trust tax return can be prepared by a POP Trust expert.

It is important to ensure the information reported is accurate as the distribution income will be pre-filled by the ATO into the beneficiary’s tax returns. If their tax returns are already submitted the ATO may automatically amend to include the distributable income

A Trust does not have to pay income tax on income that is distributed to the beneficiaries, however, it is required to pay tax on any undistributed income. 

If the income is not distributed from a trust it is taxed at the highest individual marginal tax rate.

It is beneficial in almost all circumstances to distribute the income to the beneficiaries per the Trustees annual resolution.

If the Trust is a Unit Trust, then the taxable income is distributed proportionately based on the unit holding.

If you lodge the trust tax return yourself it is due by 31 October. 

If you lodge through a registered tax agent like POP Business, generally the lodgement date will be March-May the following year. The exact date differs between Trusts so you’ll need to get in touch.

No, trusts are not subject to double taxation. Any taxable income that is distributed to the beneficiaries of the Trust is taxed in the beneficiaries tax returns.

POP’s Trust tax returns start from the low price of $500 + gst.

The size and complexity of the Trust can add additional time and technical expertise.

If bookkeeping is required, the time will be billed separately to the Trust tax return and financial statements.
