Discretionary trusts

Features of our single family discretionary trust deeds are:

  • copes with the post ‘Bamford’ necessities
  • the trustee decides what is income
  • they protect the trustee against liability under the prudent person rules that now form part of the Trustee Act
  • the deed protects directors of corporate trustees against personal liability to the extent permitted under the Corporations Law
  • our deed normally satisfies all bank requirements, although sometimes not without argument with the bank
  • the deeds contain power to add and delete beneficiaries
  • we have a linear class of eligible beneficiaries
