Death... and Taxes Symposium

event 18 July 2019 - 19 July 2019 | Sofitel Gold Coast, Broadbeach

The Death... and Taxes Symposium is The Tax Institute’s leading event for tax and other advisers who are, or expect to be, involved in the administration of an estate. This is an increasingly important part of private practice. We have an ageing population, increased wealth in succession, more contested estates, and an abundance of issues to deal with in conjunction with legal, accounting, financial and other advisers, and trustees, executors and administrators, who may be involved in a client’s affairs. This program is for advisers of all backgrounds.

The event is distinguished by the high-quality speakers, the currency of our topics and the expected interaction we will have among delegates from a range of professional backgrounds. As we found last year, when it comes to estate administration, there is a range of skills needed, and a diverse group of advisers who all need to understand their roles and anticipate the issues they will face. We all agree that tax issues are paramount.

The program will highlight the timetable of likely events that happen post-death. We will focus on key CGT and income tax problem areas; we will examine the importance of directed superannuation benefits (and the pitfalls that are highlighted in litigation); and we will make sure that you are aware of your professional obligations when dealing with clients who might be in danger of losing their capacity to make decisions. We have a session discussing challenges in advising on aged care. We will also address increasingly common international tax aspects, hear more about testamentary trusts, and a highlight will be our final session that will delve into the problems of maintaining or terminating entities that were under the control of a now deceased person. Our initial address will enforce the importance of the program’s topics.

So, if you want to be up to date and aware of all of these important issues, the Death … and Taxes Symposium is for you. Putting the event in the surrounds of the wonderful Sofitel at Broadbeach is an added attraction, and this year we have planned more time for social interaction among the many advisers who like to meet and share their experiences. We had a good social program last year, but this year will be even better.
