Andrew Skinner - Changes to the Trusts Act NZ

How upcoming changes to the Trusts Act will affect business owners and their families

Most business owners are involved with trusts in some way, whether they are created to protect assets, transfer wealth, as vehicles for trading activity, or any of a myriad of common uses. Changes to the Trusts Act in New Zealand come into effect in January 2021 and bring together hundreds of years of legal developments into a single piece of legislation. The Act will attempt to provide a resource that anyone with a question about the law that applies to their trust, should be able to find an answer within it. The Act includes changes on Trustee Duties, time, terms, appointments, and rights of all parties. As such all existing trustees as well as people considering setting up a trust in the future should become familiar with this new Act.

Join Andrew Skinner from Martelli Mckegg at Business Strategy Networking East Auckland on September 14th to learn about the act, it’s intent, and implications for business owners.
