A step by step guide to what needs to happen by 30 June
Balancing tax planning opportunities with risk
The ATO’s hit list when it comes to trusts

Once again the ATO has warned clients and practitioners that trust arrangements will be subject to close scrutiny. It is more important than ever to ensure that trust distributions are effective and that you are not placing clients at risk. With so many changes being made to the rules in recent years and the ATO releasing new guidance on how it approaches trusts, it's vital that practitioners keep up to date with these developments.

This session looks at the steps that should be taken for all trust clients to ensure that clients stay out of trouble, as well as detailing the arrangements that are at the top of the ATO’s hit list this year.
