Trust Vs Will In Singapore – What’s the Difference?
Over the years, we have received this question so many times in our extensive talks What is the clear distinction between a trust and a will? Know the difference now so you can make an informed decision while securing your next generation’s future.
You can look at wills and trusts as estate planning instruments.
● In both scenarios, your kids and spouse would receive the intended assets, wealth and property.
● However, when you write a will, the beneficiaries will not receive any asset before your death.
● If you opt for trust services in Singapore, the beneficiaries can immediately receive the benefits.
● If you have written a will, your kids or the other beneficiaries may have to go through the probate court proceedings. However, with trust planning in Singapore, you do not have to worry about such things.
● Many people in Singapore prefer hiring a trusted consultancy company to bypass the probate process.
In general, you can name a trustee in your trust to administer all the wealth and assets included in your trust fund. These trustees are bound by fiduciary responsibility towards the betterment of the beneficiary named in the trust. Do you have the expertise of Singapore’s most prominent trust company?

Trust planning entails various tax benefits to the parties involved in the trust. For example, the trustee would have to pay a tax upon the income received for his/her services against the trust. There will not be any direct taxation towards the beneficiary or the trust itself. However, if the beneficiary receives any benefits or income from the trust, then that amount shall be taxed as per the tax laws.
