We have been involved in preparing numerous Family Trusts, as well as Trading Trusts for our clients, and this is a large part of our practice. One of the first things we will consider is whether you really need to have a family trust set up and are likely to gain a benefit from this arrangement. Often we have clients who want to set up a trust but we see little need for them to do this. If you are self employed or in a situation where you need to protect your assets, then often a family trust is advisable.

We can advise you on, and draft and prepare your Family Trust, including all accompanying documentation such as Trust minutes, the Deed of Acknowledgement of Debt, Deed of Forgiveness of Debt, and amend your Will to reflect the existence of the Family Trust.

Our service includes attending to the conveyancing aspects associated with transferring real estate to the Family Trust, and annual preparation of the Deed of Forgiveness of Debt.

When preparing family trust we often work together with your accountant to ensure that the structure of your affairs meets your taxation requirements. If you do not have an accountant we can refer to you to  the firm that we have an association with, namely McCarthy Accounting Services. If you telephone our office we can provide you with the contact details.
