Buy-sell agreements and key man insurance paper

Published on 12 Oct 07 by VICTORIAN DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

This paper provides a scrutiny of key tax and commercial issues associated with buy-sell agreements, which provide for the transfer of equity between proprietors in the event of death, trauma, or disability, with special focus on:

  • self insurance and insurance trusts
  • using super funds for this purpose
  • share buy-back and unit redemption traps
  • when equity is held by trusts but insurance proceeds are paid to individuals.
