    I think you have to declare the interest earnt on accounts held in trust by you . Accounts in their names I think the tax is really high. Its to stop people putting massive amounts of their own money into b their childs account to avoid paying tax.

    The way it was put to me is that you only have to declare the interest/pay tax on kids accounts if you use the money as if it were your own.
    I have trust accounts for my kids but do nothing more than make deposits so I don't have to declare the interest.
    If I were to withdraw some of that money and pay school fees for example, I would then have to declare the interest as if it were my own.

    Yep as there would be nothing to declare anyway.

    It is my understanding that if you dont supply a TFN to the bank, they'll deduct withholding tax anyway.
