| Took place at Various
This event was run nationally on a number of different dates, most recently 23 May 2008 in Geelong.
The event was intended for those practitioners who regularly advise clients who operate businesses or hold investments through trusts and was designed to complement a sound knowledge of the operations of trusts (particularly discretionary trusts) by taking attendees through a series of practical case studies on key issues.
The 2008 Trusts Roadshow took a practical look at some of the tricky areas encountered when dealing with trusts. It focussed on key issues showing you how to maximize the benefits that can be obtained and identified potential problems before they arise.
This was a four hour presentation.
