The diversification of assets, the growth of superannuation value and marriage breakdowns and re-partnering have all contributed to complexity in succession planning. With a range of documents and directions potentially applying upon death, practitioners need to plan and draft accordingly to avoid inconsistency and ensure their clients’ intentions are met. This session will provide a guide to drafting complementary arrangements to apply upon death, including:

  • Planning considerations for clients with complex needs and assets – tips for taking a wholistic approach
  • To what extent do the terms of a BFA apply following death of one of the parties?
  • Should a will refer to a BFA or incorporate relevant provisions?
  • Structuring binding death nominations in superannuation trust deeds to align with testamentary and BFA intentions
  • Will a statement of wishes accompanying a will minimise the risk of a dispute?
  • Key issues in updating and periodic review of testamentary intentions and relevant documents
  • Drafting guidance and strategies for consistency and completeness.

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).
