About the webinar

The liability of a trustee and a director of a corporate trustee for all sorts of things is significant and represents a major risk.  This webinar reviews the risks and what happens when the chickens come home to roost.

  • Liability of all trustees for the misfeasance of one trustee:
    • civil and administrative penalties
    • ignorance – is it an excuse?
    • does it make a difference if a corporate trustee is used?
  • Liability to members for negligence or misfeasance – eg poor investment decisions
  • Is there D&O insurance which protects SMSF directors/trustees?
  • Liability to third parties if the fund owns property – what insurance do you need?
  • Right of indemnity from trust fund – when is it lost?
  • Liability for costs of court actions – Wooster v Morris

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
