I'm just trying to get my head around some issues If you invest in a trust, or your non-income earning spouse starts buying shares, then is the money transferred into their respective accounts considered income? I saw an option for a commsec account in a trust today - can I simply set this up and buy shares? The money would come directly from my personal account, but I would have no reasonable means to pay money into this trust via this route except to invest. How to get around this? (PS, I will ask my accountant when I get a daylight hour).
