what would be the cost of sertting up a non-resident UK trust.

This answer was rated:

what would be the cost of sertting up a non-resident UK trust. Settlor and beneficiary are non-residents, trustee could be UK resident person or e.g. a solicitor.
What is the time required to set up such a trust
The costs and time involved in setting up a non resident trust depends on the professional you engage to assist you with this process and what you are able to agree with the professional e.g. One professional may charge you £5,000 and take 2 weeks to set up the Trust, another may charge you half this amount and take double the time.
I suggest you shop around i.e. Get in touch with 2-3 solicitors to see what costs and timeframes they are willing to work with.

Thank you for the initial quidance on the costs/timings. What is the critical path item for the non-resident trust set up? Is there some mandaroty registration e.g. at HMRC which takes a set time? Thanks
