The Deed of Variation of Discretionary Trust (excluding foreign persons) is a document that allows you to vary your existing discretionary trust deed to exclude ‘foriegn persons’ from being beneficiaries.
In certain jurisdictions, having a specific clause to exclude foreign beneficiaries may help avoid the associated state-based duty and taxes that may apply. For example, if a foreign person is a beneficiary to the trustee’s residential property in NSW, they may be liable for ‘surcharge purchaser duty’ and ‘surcharge land tax’.
It’s important to remember that this document will not prevent an existing named ‘foreign’ beneficiary from benefiting from the trust. The deed serves to excIude any other ‘foreign’ person who has not been previously named as a beneficiary. You may wish to contact the relevant revenue office in your state/territory for further details regarding the surcharge rate that applies to a ‘foreign trust’.
