Foreign Wills

Published on 12 Aug 2014 | Took place at The Tax Institute, Sydney, NSW

Client matters with an overseas element are becoming more commonplace as the global economy extends and the world becomes smaller. In providing advice and representation today, the trusts and estates solicitor needs to be able to advise regarding both wills prepared overseas that purport to deal with Australian assets, and in relation to the preparation and administration of Australian wills that deal with assets in other jurisdictions.

This event covered:

  • wills made elsewhere for use here
  • wills made here for use elsewhere
  • recognition, including jurisdiction questions.
