We regularly establish trusts for a wide range of advisers and clients throughout Australia. We also advise on and prepare a range of documents for trusts including investment structuring, succession and various types of variations to trusts.
Our tax (including duty and land tax) expertise is invaluable in offering quality advice and documentation. Our trust documents are regularly updated due to the ongoing changes and legal developments. Moreover, obtaining trusts from suppliers without legal and tax expertise is now extremely risky.
