The following Trusts and Inheritance Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
HMRC’s online TRS is stated to have been designed to implement the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 (MLR 2017), as well as to support the digital direction of HMRC and general tax transparency going forwards.
This legislation forms part of the UK’s overall anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing regime and came into force on 26 June 2017 to give effect to the EU’s fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4MLD).

HMRC has provided information and guidance on the TRS in a piecemeal fashion over a long period (often through the Trusts and Estates Newsletters). This guidance has now been largely consolidated in a new Trust Registration Manual.
Initially, all UK express trusts which had a liability to pay any of the relevant UK taxes (income tax, CGT, IHT, SDLT (or the Scottish equivalent) or stamp duty reserve tax) were liable to register.

trusts which come into existence by operation of law (such as trusts arising on intestacy, implied or constructive trusts, and trusts created under a court order)
trusts relating to joint ownership of property (for example, land
