Frequently Asked Questions

A discretionary trust is a legal arrangement where a trustee holds and manages assets for the benefit of beneficiaries. It offers flexibility and asset protection, making it ideal for estate planning, tax minimisation, and asset management purposes.

See our explainer video with Damin, one of our in-house lawyers, for an explanation.

A discretionary trust deed has 4 primary parties being:

  • The “Appointer” who has ultimate control of the Trust and can appoint and remove the trustee.
  • The “Trustee” who manages the day-to-day operations of the Trust.
  • The “Settlor” who establishes the Trust, which is an individual over the age of 18 who has no beneficial interest in the assets of the Trust. Normally this is your lawyer or accountant.
  • The “Beneficiaries” who are the individuals and/or companies or charities who may have an interest in receiving benefits from the Trust when the Trustee declares (at its absolute discretion) a distribution of the Trust assets to that beneficiary.
Our assisted trust product offers end-to-end trust establishment services, including drafting of the trust deed and electronic signing. We also provide options for payment of stamp duty, incorporation of a corporate trustee (where required), and obtaining an ABN/TFN number.
The starting price for our assisted trust deed service is $900 (excluding GST). Additional costs apply for stamp duty, and optional services such as obtaining an Australian Business Number, or incorporating a corporate trustee.
