About the webinar

Brine v Carter found that an executor seeking a super death benefit for himself had a conflict between interest and duty.  This case is a warning to executors who think they can simply claim the deceased’s super.  This session looks at the issues involving conflicts of duty concerning executors and includes:

  • Understanding the potential scope of Brine v Carter and McIntosh v McIntosh – does it extend to:
    • control of the SMSF?
    • attorneys?
  • Estate planning implications of these decisions for clients with super in retail and industry funds
  • Why BDBNs aren’t always the answer
  • Ensuring the will enables family members to claim – what needs to go in the will
  • Can will drafting overcome the Brine v Carter problem?
  • SMSFs and the role of the decision maker of the fund – how does this interplay with the role of executor?
  • SMSFs – is it better just to sidestep the will in death benefit planning?
