I did some quick calculations to compare savings on land tax paid when purchasing in a Trust vs not in a Trust. It's a very simplified calculation that considers only the land tax paid for a single property. I thought there would've been land tax savings if a property was purchased in a Trust but my calculations seem to show that purchasing property in a Trust is just more expensive. I know there are other factors/advantages of holding a property in a Trust (bankruptcy and lawsuits) but from a purely financial point of view it doesn't seem to be beneficial? I've shared a google spreadsheet to show my calculations. Land tax calculations are based off this thread Devank posted (Thanks!). I feel like I am missing something fundamental, so if someone could point that out then thank you!
