How does your SMSF death benefit nomination stack up?
This 1 hour webinar will provide 1 CPD hour.
The recent High Court decision in Hill v Zuda confirmed that SMSF members can have non-lapsing binding death benefit nominations. However, is that the end of it? How do you know whether an SMSF death benefit nomination is actually binding on the SMSF trustee(s) and will be followed?
In this special webinar Mark Ellem will be joined by Matthew Burgess from View Legal to consider the implications of the Hill v Zuda case for SMSF members and death benefit nominations. We will also cover what SMSF accountants and advisers can do to assist their clients in correctly implementing their death benefit directions, including a special offer to attendees.
