Our annual estate planning conference (held in Melbourne in March every year) is one of our most popular conferences and that is why we are repeating this event in the Gold Coast in September 2018 for all those who couldn’t get to Melbourne. This year’s conference examines some of the key issues estate planners face, including passing control of family trusts, trust variations, and the impact of financial agreements on the estate. It will also review key issues with superannuation and estate planning following the reforms.
