  • my client will make a capital gain so when do you think about what the trust deed says and can you use the 'precedent' resolution giving the 'net income' to dad, mum and the kids? 
  • practical tips and pitfalls for streaming capital gains and franked income.
  • should you use percentages, figures or a mixture and how do you account for discrepancies and amendments?
  • getting the accounting right – you will be surprised how important it is.
