About the Webinar

Family trusts and testamentary trusts are a popular vehicle for asset protection and prudent financial management. However, as a result of recent legislative changes, along with new case law, the landscape is shifting and it may be time for clients’ estate plans to receive a grease and oil change. This session examines these key changes and how they may impact the estate plan, including:

  • Unpacking the recent excepted trust income reforms
    • How do these reforms limit tax concessions for minors receiving trust income?
    • Do non-estate assets received before 1 July 2019 qualify for the concessional treatment?
    • Are super assets considered to be outside of the deceased’s estate?
  • When will a trust deed need variation? Identifying reasons for change
  • Reviewing key clauses – vesting date, death or incapacity of appointors and guardians, beneficiaries and variation
  • The concepts of perpetuity and vesting
  • What happens on the vesting date?
  • Is the door now open to South Australian trusts? Examining impact of Clark v Ebden [2020] SASC
  • Case update, including Callus v KB Investments [2020] VSC 135
