As you are probably already aware, trusts now have more reporting requirements with the IRD. However, in some circumstances, trusts, especially family trusts, may have been made non-active with the IRD, which means there is no income to report (and no tax to pay).
Although a trust may not generate any income, and therefore may not be required to file an income tax return, it is still important to prepare financial statements for several reasons.
While not compulsory if a trust does not earn income, or has passive income below the $1,000 threshold, for the reasons outlined above, we consider it best practice for all trusts to prepare financial statements.
Please contact GRA if you would like to know more about completing financial statements for your trust, and we will be happy to provide you with a quote.
