 Recorded Webinar: Avoiding SMSF Trust Deed Disasters

Date: Friday 13th May 2022
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour


The trust deed should underpin the trustees’ actions. It is essential that the deed meets the requirements of the fund and addresses bespoke fund management requirements. However, many trustees have a ‘set and forget’ attitude towards the trust deed. This session examines how to ensure the trust deed is valid and supports the SMSF’s strategies, including: 

  • Key provisions in trust deed and importance of trustee awareness
  • Understanding the investment power in the trust deed – is it appropriate? 
  • The challenge of keeping the trust deed current: 
    • is the trust deed up to date in light of recent developments? 
    • does it allow for ‘new’ types of investments such as digital currency? 
  • Is the trust deed ambiguous or poorly drafted? 
  • The trust deed and death benefits – the issue with power of attorneys
  • Amending the trust deed correctly
