PUBLIC TRUSTEE

 The Public Trustee provides an extensive range of services:

  • Making of your will – Making a will is the best way to ensure your assets will be distributed according to your wishes
  • Estate administration – Estates can be administered in accordance with the terms of your will
  • Trusts –A trust secures your assets so that children or other named beneficiaries can access them in the future
  • Enduring Power of Attorney –If you have an accident or sudden illness, you may need someone to manage your financial affairs.
  • Enduring Power of Guardianship – An enduring guardian is a person you can appoint to make personal and lifestyle decisions for you. The role of a guardian is not the same as an attorney. An attorney manages a person’s financial and legal affairs, whereas a guardian makes personal and lifestyle decisions on behalf of someone else. You can choose who this person should be.
  • Personal management services – Sometimes due to an illness, accident, old age or disability, people find that they are no longer able to handle their financial affairs.
  • Taxation Services – Public Trustee will prepare your annual tax returns and provide advice on all your personal taxation matters
  • Fund Management Services – Monies can be held in trust for clients and help is offered for investing these monies.
