Additional information

Trust administration

Provisions within the Land Tax Act 2005 allow for some types of trusts to avoid the trust surcharge rate of tax if they notify us of:

  • their exclusion status, or
  • the unit holdings of unit holders, or
  • the beneficial interest of beneficiaries.

In addition, if the land acquired is used by a beneficiary as their principal place of residence (PPR), trustees of some types of trusts may elect to nominate a PPR Beneficiary. This will impact the way in which the trust is assessed for land tax.
