Guide to trust registrations 

The Trust Registration Service is an online system by which trustees can register a trust with HMRC.

It is now a requirement that certain types of trusts, even if they are not taxable, such as a life interest in a property to a spouse type trust, are registered with HMRC.

HMRC have a Trust Registration Service Manual on their website which has full details of exemptions and requirements for registrations of trusts.
