Trust Deed Review Service

The general consensus amongst trust advisors is that your trust deeds (including family trusts and unit trusts) need to be updated to prevent any adverse tax consequences for both the trust and its beneficiaries. There are many reasons why trust deeds need to be updated. Trust deeds which contain out-of-date provisions, drafting errors or inconsistent terms can lead to serious adverse consequences such as incorrect tax treatment of distributions, the trustee breaching their duties, asset protection issues and beneficiaries being inadvertently excluded. Trust deeds should not be updated just for the sake of being updated. However, if you are concerned that the trust deed is out-of-date or contains errors, a review of the trust deed should be undertaken.
