The use of discretionary trusts and company structures as part of asset protection strategies has many benefits but potential tax problems can arise following marriage bust-ups. This session looks at tax effective strategies in the event of family breakdown, including:

  • The tax and trust law interface - protecting assets in a property settlement

  • Transfer of family home and other assets owned by a family company in family law settlements

  • Rules for transfer of assets from one spouse to another under court orders or settlement – the tax issues

  • Rollover relief for a family law property settlement

  • Unpaid present entitlements and family law settlements

  • Trust resettlements in family law matters

  • Company loans, debts and payments and family law settlements
