Practical Trusteeship – Implications of the Trusts Act 2019 - 22 October 2019 (On Demand)


Responding to a new legislative environment

The Trusts Act 2019 was passed in late July 2019 and becomes effective on 30 January 2021. The new Act replaces the Trustee Act 1956.

The new Act will modernise the New Zealand trustscape by making trustee duties and responsibilities more transparent to trustees, beneficiaries and settlors.

If beneficiaries better understand trustee obligations, what do trustees and their advisers need to be on thinking about to be on top of their game?

An 18-month implementation period doesn’t allow much time to review current practices, reposition firms or get trustees and trust clients up to speed.

The first step is to consider the practical implications of the Act for trustees and their advisers.

In this webinar, Lindsay Pope of Trustee Support Ltd will put a professional trustee practitioner’s filter across the new Act to highlight the practical implications of key provisions for accounting advisers, trustees and clients. For example:

  • Where to strengthen existing trust governance procedures
  • Where new governance processes will be required
  • Considerations for managing the new information obligations (holding of core documents, notifying beneficiaries of basic trust information and responding to beneficiary requests for information).
  • Understand the practical implications for trustee decision-making

The webinar content is designed to review key provisions of the Act and raise awareness on the considerations for trustees and their advisers.

Lindsay will provide guidance on policies, processes and procedures for practically managing the implications of more transparent trust legislation.

This webinar is a must for professional advisers, professional trustees, trust managers and trust administrators.
