New ATO Checklist for Trust Distributions

Recent court cases extending the obligations of trustees to consider beneficiaries (see Re Owies Family Trust [2020] VSC 716) making managing a family trust considerably more complex.

The ATO has released a checklist for trustees who wish to make beneficiaries presently entitled to trust income, by way of making resolutions. The checklist can be found here.
