I have a new client with a problem, they have lost their Trust Deed. The Deed was established in the early 80's and it is a trading trust used for their principal business. It owns no property other than business assets (goodwill/debtors etc). but that value is approx $1,5M. Now they have searched high and low, the solicitor who wrote it is long gone, old accountants don't have copies so those avenues seem closed. They are seeking refinance at the moment and a bank is asking for the deed. I am aware of possible Re-settlement issues if we rewrite the old deed so am wary of going down that path. Has anyone ever approached the ATO and/or Office of State Revenue (NSW)on this issue before?
