Property Law

Companies and Trusts

Zaitman Lawyers has extensive experience in companies and trusts and is well versed in complex business environments. 

In this complex business environment many questions arise regarding the suitability of incorporating Companies or establishing Trusts to own property or to conduct a business or other commercial enterprise, rather than personal ownership. The decision can have a significant bearing on the liability for stamp duty, land tax, taxation implications and issues of limited liability for Directors.

Zaitman Lawyers in association with your Accountant can advise you on the implications of establishing and working within a corporate or trust structure in comparison to having assets in personal names.

We provide wide ranging services within this legal area including:

  • Incorporation of Companies

  • Preparation of Shareholder Agreements

  • Preparation and establishment of various Trusts including Family Discretionary Trusts and Unit Trusts and Unit holders agreements

  • Establishment of Self Managed Superannuation Funds
