Overview

There is a common misconception at times that trusts are not regulated, and that trusts are going to become a rare animal going forward. As an accountant, your work often starts where the attorney's work ends. This session will cover and debate the following key concepts:

  • Why would I still want to have a trust?
  • The importance of a well drafted trust deed and the implications if this is not done with care
  • The alter ego challenge
  • Regulation of trusts through statute and case law
  • The rights, responsibilities, liabilities and obligations of trustees
  • The rights of beneficiaries
  • And much more through lively debate!

During this two-hour webinar, the presenter’s aim is to give insight into how the accounting profession views matters and the challenges we face that can be resolved through putting legal and accounting minds together to find solutions.
