Companies & Trusts Lawyers Servicing Merrylands, Parramatta & Western Sydney

A Trust is a fundamental element in the planning of financial affairs, whether for a business, investment purposes or a family.  Put simply, a trust is used when one party holds property or rights on behalf of, and for the benefit of, another.  The property held in trust can be cash, shares, superannuation funds, or even companies and physical property like a factory or commercial building.

There are a number of reasons why a trust may be used, but the primary purpose of establishing a trust is usually:

a. For protection from creditors;

b. To maximise taxation benefits;

c. For asset protection. .

The law surrounding trusts however can be complex.  At Maclarens Lawyers our experienced lawyers can help you with:
