Changes of trustee - getting it right

Pages: pp 70-71


Changing the trustee of a self managed superannuation fund (SMSF) is critically important. SMSF deeds differ significantly in how a change of trustee is to be implemented. A failure to comply with these requirements may mean that the trustee of an SMSF has not been validly changed. In this article, we examine a case in which a change of trustee was found to be ineffective and, as a result, the trustee office was determined to be vacant. We then outline some key considerations that arise with any change of trustee.
