Fiduciary Accounting For Estates And Trusts

About This Course:
Financial accounting for trusts and estates is one of the least understood branches of accounting. Fiduciary accounting is not particularly concerned with recording income and expenses, but is obsessed with determining whether receipts and expenditures are assigned to income or principal/corpus. Only after that is known can the Trustee begin to make their required and discretionary distributions to beneficiaries.

However, very few non-corporate trustees have any idea of what is required for proper trust accounting and reports. This course will dive into this tricky area and provide a reporting guide for fiduciary accounting.

Agenda / Covered Topics
  • Apply a working understanding of fiduciary accounting for estates and trusts
  • Gain a working knowledge of the rules as they relate to fiduciary accounting
  • Discuss planning and potential pitfalls
  • Examine provisions of the Uniform Principal and Income Act
  • Mandatory and discretionary allocations and adjustments (did you know that depreciation is a Discretionary adjustment?)
  • Trustees ability to override the fallback rules
  • Review the contents of a proper set of trust accounting statements
