An amount of $200 was described as distribution from the "ABC family trust". Should I use the article "the" or not?

You need to say: ... as a distribution from the ABC family trust.

The difference between "account" and "trust" is that accounts belong to companies or individuals (you don't use an article but the possessive: ABC Pty Ltd's account, John's account ), while trusts are preceded by a name that identifies them and take an article, being sometimes capitalized (the John Smith Trust, the ABC family trust).
