Client case example
Accountants.com.au has recently reviewed a number of clients’ estate
plans in which the DIY super fund assets were ignored as
part of the plan.
The proposed plan did not show that there was a clear understanding
that the Will laws and Super laws regarding beneficiary entitlement
can result in different outcomes with respect to property
settlements (sometimes an aggrieved beneficiary can claim
more from the Super Fund than the Will Estate).
Accountants.com.au then arranged for the super trust deeds
and wills to be redrafted where necessary by an Expert Estate
and Tax planning lawyer they work closely with.
The Result – Happy clients who were adequately protected
from unnecessary estate disputes. REMEMBER – the estate
finances all legal disputes involving warring beneficiaries.
