On 1 September 2021, the Trust Registration service became available for non-taxable trusts to register with HMRC. Previously it had only been available to taxable trusts and those non-taxable trusts registered for the HMRC pilot of the service.

The opening of the TRS to all UK express trusts and some non-UK trusts holding UK property, whether taxable in the UK or not, has prompted HMRC to clarify the deadlines for trustees to register non-taxable trusts. These had previously been delayed due to the service not being ready. The new deadlines are:

Certain specific trusts are excluded from registering as are bare trusts and deeds of trust between spouses in connection with Joint property ownership, as these are not classed as express trusts for these purposes.
