Topical Trust Issues

NZ $40.00
Author(s): John Hart, Bill Patterson
Published: 14 September, 1998
Pages: 93



This paper canvasses a range of topical trust issues which are of importance to lawyers, accountants and other trust professionals. Some of the matters canvassed are relatively novel, for example trading trusts, variation of trusts, and the use of protectors. Other topics are not novel, but are technically demanding, for example, associated person planning using trusts. All the topics are of importance in day-to-day practice and, as with most areas of the law, are ever-changing. It is therefore timely to consider and understand the current "state of the play" in relation to these matters.

In relation to some topics, there is almost a complete lack of judicial (or toher) commentary in New Zealand. Hence there is a pioneering element to this paper, which has required the authors to analyse issues on general legal principles.

The objective of the paper is not to be an academic treatise, but to provide a practical and valuable resource for trust practitioners.
