I have recently been given the role of trustee of a Family Discretionary Trust. The previous Trustee used very basic Minutes when making decisions. I am wondering if the is a lay mans set of pro forma type forms or a good method of actually running the trust that anyone here could recommend. I am trying to establish a legally compliant and efficient way of running this trust - the nuts and bolts of it anyway. I have already established that I need to get 3 Certified copies and put one with the accountant, one in the safe and one as a working document - up until now that has not been done and if these are lost or misplaced can lead to problems.
