The saying goes that two things are certain – death and taxes. Although not certain, as we live longer the chances of living for a period with a lack of capacity is more likely.

What happens and what are the potential costs of not being prepared for incapacity?

What are some of the hidden traps in planning for incapacity?

Do you know what can and often does go wrong when the planning process is not fully thought through?

What can and can't attorneys do, and how do they protect themselves from claims of inappropriate behaviour?

We will discuss preventable issues that we see when:

  • there are disputes in the family;
  • an attorney has a conflict, or does things that cause a conflict;
  • a member of an SMSF loses capacity;
  • other structures such as family trusts are in place.

The CGW team will take you through case studies that illustrate some traps and demonstrate innovative strategies that have been used to avoid the potential disasters.

We hope that you'll be able to join us for this insightful session.
