Recorded Webinar: Testamentary Trusts: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly


Date: Tuesday 28th July 2020
Approximate Length: 1 Hour

Testamentary trusts provide a greater level of control over the management and distribution of assets to beneficiaries, but also bring with them complexity, inflexibility and ongoing cost. This session will look at the requirements of these trusts and the key considerations for determining their relevance to your client, including:

  • When to recommend a testamentary trust to a client and why
  • Types of testamentary trust and relevant circumstances for each
  • Multiple and umbrella trust structures – protecting the next generations and vesting issues
  • Trust creation – powers, restrictions, conditions, asset allocation and other essentials
  • Recent integrity measures for concessional tax arrangements – what they mean for your client
