View is excited to announce its live 2017 seminar roadshow. With events in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth the half and full day presentations will be given by key estate planning specialists at View, including Tara Lucke, Patrick Ellwood, Sophie Cohen and Matthew Burgess.

The presentations will be run as ‘workshops’ and will allow for significant attendee participation, including answering of questions submitted during and ahead of each session. Please click here to send an email question to us, or simply ask us on the day.

The day will be split into 2 segments, attendees can register for either or both components.

The topics in the morning segment are as follows:

Topic 1: Estate planning in 2017 – where are we at?

The pace of evolution of all aspects of estate planning has continued to intensify over the last 18 months. This presentation will use case studies to explore all key recent developments including:
1. the key estate planning related court decisions over the last 18 months
2. taxation and stamp duty changes
3. examples of the attitude of the Australian Taxation Office towards various estate planning strategies
4. bespoke planning opportunities

Topic 2: Enduring powers of attorney and guardianship – everything you need to know

Arguably, one of the most contentious areas of estate planning relates to enduring powers of attorney and guardianship.

There is an array of issues that must be taken into account in relation to appointing attorneys and guardians.

In this topic we explored some of the key things that advisers must address, including:
1. how to structure the appointment of more than one attorney;
2. the interrelationship between attorneys, enduring attorneys, guardians, executors and binding death benefit nominations;
3. the interplay of these arrangements across state and international borders;
4. the role of state government departments; and
5. the implications of recent court decisions, including the high court’s decision in Stanford.

Topic 3: Adviser facilitated Estate planning – Everything you need to know to deliver exceptional value

Estate planning is the ‘new black’ for many advisers. Indeed, adviser facilitated estate planning is one of the very few areas of the law where advisers and clients can work collaboratively and constructively.

View’s web-based estate planning platform is widely recognised as the solution of choice by leading advisers.

This session will explore the key ways financial advisers, accountants, risk advisers and other lawyers you can leverage View’s platform to radically improve their estate planning offerings – and in turn deliver client solutions that simultaneously create immediately profitable income streams for referrers.

The topics in the afternoon segment are as follows:

Topic 4: Superannuation and Estate Planning

1. Recent cases regarding death benefit nominations;
2. Strategies for death benefit nominations, reversionary pensions and superannuation wills;
3. Approaches for aligning superannuation entitlements with wider estate plans; and
4. The impact of adjacent areas of the law including enduring powers of attorney, marriage breakdowns and the ‘notional estate’ provisions that can apply where wills are challenge

Topic 5: Testamentary trusts – bespoke planning strategies

1. Structuring testamentary trusts to survive multiple generations;
2. ‘GST’ strategies (ie Generation Skipping Trusts);
3. Cascading and master testamentary trusts;
4. Using corporate trustees and tailored constitutions; and
5. Family boards and family constitutions.

Topic 6: I’m a celebrity get me out of here – estate planning horror stories of the rich and famous

Insights from practical unsuccessful use of estate planning tools by celebrities in their estate planning.

1. Michael Hutchence’s international gift and loan back arrangement
2. The Rinehart Family and trust vesting tips
