To get an active account we need a completed application form and a certified copy of the trust deed. If the trust requires registration with HMRC’s Trust Registration Service (TRS) you will also need to provide a Confirmation of Registration Document OR a valid reason for registration exemption. Finally, we need to verify the identity of key individuals related to the trust.
