Trusts

Trusts are a long established mechanism which allows individuals to benefit from the assets without assuming the legal ownership of those assets so that others (the trustees) have day to day control over the assets. A trust can be extremely flexible and have an existence totally independent of the person who established it and those who benefit from it.

Managing Absence

Recent surveys indicate that the adverse impact of absence on business profitability today is significant, with thousands of man hours lost every day. Recent statistics show that an average of 6.6 days are lost each year per employee with a median cost of £609 per employee. Approximately two-thirds of working time lost to absence is accounted for by short-term absences of up to seven days.
