Estate and Business Succession Planning

Published on 21 May 2015 | Took place at Tattersall's Club, Brisbane, QLD

Few other areas of specialisation place the same demands on practitioners to be on top of the requirements of clients at every stage of their life cycle. Planning requires in-depth knowledge that provides practical outcomes over a wide range of assets, and at a level that results in meaningful client participation (as that is required for an effective result).

This event covered both taxation and commercial considerations when dealing with the most common issues that arise in this area of practice.
