Just a thought that popped into my head while I was sitting in the sun yesterday. Is it possible to progressively sell a share of your property to your trust thereby reducing the CGT and stamp duty payable in a year. That is, if a person was to sell the trust for example a 20% share of the property each year for 5 years, the stamp duty would be less in total as it is calculated on the amount sold at the time of transfer and the CGT may be less as your total income may keep you in a lower tax threshold. Also, if this was combined with transfering the property to a spouse on a lower income for natural love and affection prior to implementing the above strategy, the CGT could be even less. What are the holes in this?
