This webinar will provide an up to date consideration of the issues facing trustees and their advisers in a rapidly changing trust landscape. The webinar will be complimented with materials that expand on the matters discussed.
This webinar, which will conclude with a question and answer section, will consider:
Trust law is evolving at an increasing pace as it responds to case law developments, societal and legislative challenges. Beneficiaries are more aware of their rights, but in practical terms, technically less able to advance these. Trustees of discretionary trusts have wide powers, but an increasingly wide range of considerations take into account before these should be exercised. From a legislative perspective trustees and their advisers need to be aware of the Trusts Bill, the bright-line test and when the main family home exemption will not apply, the practical consequences of how limitations as to who can own residential property in New Zealand will apply to trusts; as well as relationship property reform.
Advisers and trustees need to be informed regarding the changing trust landscape and equipped with knowledge so as to be able to advise settlors, trustees and beneficiaries.
