Superannuation & Trusts are often seen as daunting and complex areas of the law for individuals and businesses alike. With a little help, they don’t have to be. Whether acting for an individual or a business, our Superannuation & Trust experts can ensure that you are meeting your legal obligations whilst getting the most out of your entities and truly setting yourself or your business up for a strong future. 

Superannuation

At HHG, we can establish any type of Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) that will suit your specific needs. Should you already have a SMSF in place, our experienced team can make necessary updates to the SMSF trust deed to ensure that it is compliant with the forever changing superannuation laws.

It is also important to understand that benefits from your superannuation fund do not automatically form part of the deceased’s estate.  The trustee of the deceased’s superannuation fund maintains the discretion to distribute these death benefits to beneficiaries of their choosing as long as it is compliant with superannuation laws.

A Binding Death Benefit Nomination effectively allows the deceased to nominate a person to receive the Superannuation Death Benefit. It is, however, necessary for that person to remain a beneficiary permitted by superannuation laws.  Our team of Solicitors have years of experience in drafting these nominations and providing our clients with greater certainty as to who will receive their Superannuation benefit on their death.

Trusts

Trusts are a popular form of business structure that effectively enables a company or person (trustee) to hold assets transferred to it for the benefit of another (a beneficiary). They are commonly utilised to protect assets from potential creditors and to allow income generated by assets within the trust to be distributed to beneficiaries in a tax effective manner.

Our trusts team have decades of experience in drafting trusts deeds that can suit your specific personal or business circumstances. This includes, but is not limited to fixed unit trusts and discretionary trusts. We cater for all business sizes ranging from major business ventures, or smaller family or personal trusts.

All advice provided in relation to superannuation and trusts is supported by highest quality tax advice from our tax team. Our aim is to provide our clients with cost effective advice and to protect their interests every step of the way.

Legal Services

We also provide the following legal services should you already have a trust in place;

  • Trust variations and updates.
  • Deeds of excluding beneficiaries pursuant to family court orders.
  • Deeds of appointment of trustee, guardian or appointors.
  • Vesting of property to beneficiaries of trust at nominal stamp duty.
  • Complete reviews of trusts and provide advice.

"Always fast and thorough service. Thank you"

Sitka

My circumstances at the time I made contact with HHG were dire following my argument being rejected by two no win no fee firms. Following my initial meeting with HHG's employment law team I was left feeling extremely positive by the response and concern shown by HHG in regards to their support of my argument along with their preparedness to pursue an outcome on my behalf.

I accept the fact that nobody really wins in these cases (mental health/ workplace) however the end result was what would be considered most favourable and far in excess of what would have been achieved had I not sought the advice from HHG.

I have no hesitation in recommending HHG to anyone caught up in the messy circumstances I found myself in at the time.

Great advice and five-star commitment to their client!!"

Nathan

"Thank you for such great assistance with the transaction of Flying Domestics on behalf of Lorna Good. It has been such a pleasure to work with the HHG Legal Group and I look forward to working with you in the future."

"Simon Creek and his team were at all times empathic, professional and confident.  My matter needed to be addressed within a pressing time frame, and their availability at short notice and contact after hours was much appreciated.  It caused me considerable stress, but having such a thoroughly reliable and competent team to call on helped me to feel in control. Although I hope not to need their services again in future, I would be confident in doing so!"

Lana

"A good outcome is what we can expect.  A great outcome is a sign of a company which does the very best for their clients. A very big thank you to Daniel Morris for showing empathy towards my small and much needed legal action.

To HHG Legal Group, thank you for a great outcome.  I would recommend your company to anyone seeking legal services."

It means so much at a very difficult time. I'm so grateful to you."
