Basic Elements on Trust

Trust can be a useful and valuation tool for tax administration and on disposition of one’s wealth. Trust is in fact a legal arrangement whereby a person (the trustee) owns property in his name but holds and manages it for the benefit of someone else (the beneficiary). A family trust is one formed for the benefit of a family group. Typically, the creation of a trust involves three parties: (a) Settlor (also Grantor or Donor): The party (e.g. the parents) forms the trust and transfers assets to the trust by way of gift or for value.

Calling Witness on Tax Appeal

In tax appeal, the Board of Review will listen, analyse and assess the evidence and the grounds submitted by the applicant and the IRD. The burden on calling witnesses to testify is on the applicant. The common law trial proceedings practised in Hong Kong was an adversarial system and not inquisitorial system. The parties of the hearing should submit the evidence and the grounds favourable to them for the Board to decide. The initiative to submit legal grounds or to call witness was on the parties of the hearing.
