Gifting Update 2020 - 1.5 CPD hours

  • Publication date: April 2020
  • Authors: Chris Kelly, Greg Kelly

Gifting arrangements and documentation need to reflect the changing legal and regulatory environment and individual client’s circumstances. It is no longer appropriate to use standard sale and purchase, debt back and forgiveness of debt arrangements. There is no longer one standard or right approach: gifting documents need to be adapted to individual circumstances.

The nature and scope of gifting, and the lawyer’s role in advising, varies from one client to another. A thorough understanding of the “why” and “how” of gifting in this changing environment will help you to resolve possible problems.

This module will discuss potential complications, the key issues to be aware of, and documentation best practice. It will consider the different solutions, along with the specific tools available to lawyers when advising your client about gifting.

Topics covered will include:

  • Gifting versus a loan, helping your client to clarify which is which
  • Presumption of advancement and the intention to make a gift
  • Capacity to make a gift, the signs to be aware of
  • Documentation best practice
  • Consequences of no documentation.
