What looks Super in 2019 (at least until the federal election…)!!!

Let Neal Dallas SSA (Self managed super fund Specialist Adviser) and Victoria Mercer take you through the recent legal updates to the superannuation laws and provide their perspective on the proposed changes to NALI (non arm’s length income), LRBAs (limited recourse borrowing arrangements) and allowing 6 member funds.

Also, as a bonus, they will also review the recent audit cases, Cam & Bear Pty Ltd v McGoldrick and Ryan Wealth Holdings Pty Ltd v Baumgartner, and discuss how these cases impact the scoping and retainers. This had wider reaching relevance and guidance to scoping of retainers for all professionals, be they auditors, accountants, financial planners, lawyers, engineers, architects etc.

Estate litigation focus: what are the equitable claim options associated with deceased estates and estate litigation?

Presented by Kelly Gatehouse | We are all familiar that family provision claims seem to be on the rise, as well as the spate of recent high-profile cases have been making their way through the appellate courts, including all the way to the High Court. However, of the lesser known options available, “equitable remedies” in estate litigation may often be a more appropriate claim than anything else. 

 This session looks at when these remedies may be relevant, what remedies are available, when they should be claimed. The session will cover:

  • Equitable remedies and elements

Deceased induced them to believing they were provided for in the will

Suffered a detriment in reliance on the promise

What relief can the court grant?

  • Equitable estoppel – when is it appropriate to plead?
  • Constructive trusts
  • When is an equitable relief likely to be refused?
  • Recent cases
