Trusts - the Key to the Future
Why should you have a trust?
Having a trust protects your assets, family and business interests.
If you are interested in saving effectively for retirement, financial flexibility, providing for your family, or protection from creditors, professional negligence or asset testing, then you need a trust!

ESTABLISH GOALS FOR THE TRUST
What is the purpose of your trust? What do you hope to achieve with it? These are questions we help you answer.
PREPARE TRUSTEE MINUTES
Trustee minutes serve to document meetings made by the trustees and the decisions agreed upon in those meetings. We prepare your trustee minutes in a clear and professional manner.
We prepare the initial gifting documentation and any subsequent gifting paperwork needed.
TRANSFER OF ASSETS
We prepare the Sale and Purchase Agreement needed to transfer your assets to the trust.
This can include your property, transfer of NZ listed or NZ private company shares and transfer of NZ Life policies.
We recommend how to structure your affairs to best suit your circumstances to enable your passing to be as stress-free as possible for your family members.
ANNUAL REVIEW OF TRUSTS
An annual review of trusts is important as circumstances change, and an independent look at it gives comfort to the Trustees that all is in order in the decision-making process, and the paperwork.
ACT AS A TRUSTEE
In suitable cases, we can act as a trustee for new or existing trusts. We will advise a fee for this service reflecting time, involvement, risk, and responsibility.
PREPARE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
We prepare annual financial statements in line with appropriate accounting and legal procedures.
We advise trustees who need professional guidance in decision-making and meeting their legal obligations under the trust deed.
