Why Locate Your Trust in New Hampshire?

New Hampshire is a premier location for establishing and administering trusts because of its advantageous trust laws and tax structure. Our progressive trust code, designed to maintain and enhance New Hampshire’s advantages for the siting of trusts, is one of the primary reasons individuals and families from all over the world choose New Hampshire as the location for their trusts.

These are among the many attractive features of New Hampshire’s trust laws:

  • Robust protection of trust assets from the claims of creditors
  • Multi-generational Dynasty Trusts
  • No state income or capital gains taxes (except for Grantor Trusts).
  • Self-Settled “asset protection” Trusts
  • Ability to create Directed/Divided Trust architecture, separating trustee roles
  • Ability to modify trusts through decanting
  • Exemption of Private Family Trust companies from registration and regulation

The articles, “Why the Granite State Rocks at Trust Administration (2016),” and “Why the Granite State Still Rocks at Trust Administration (2020),” discuss the continuing evolution of our trust law and why New Hampshire is still the premier location for establishing and administering trusts.

In addition, a podcast for the Boston Business Journal, Steve Burke and Patrick Collins, discuss New Hampshire trust laws, and how Massachusetts residents can take advantage of them. Click here to listen.
