Hi, I've spent over 20 years advising leading Australian companies like these. Now, I've packed my knowledge into a unique Legal Zebra Minutes of Meeting Template for everyday Australians, just like you, even if you can't afford to hire a lawyer.
YOUR MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEES IN BLACK & WHITE
With our downloadable Minutes of Meeting of Trustees, you can get your Trust Minutes in black & white instantly.
The Legal Zebra Template guides you through the process, so you can confidently record your Minutes with a formal, yet easy to follow, document.
You'll avoid "legal overwhelm" and lawyer's fees and at the same time ensure that the Minutes for your family trust, unit trust or superannuation trust are professionally recorded.
I like the convenience of obtaining a legal document online, completing it in my own home office and still having confirmation from a qualified legal practitioner that it’s legally binding.
This comes at a very reasonable cost.
It certainly beats the hassle and expense of a visit to a solicitor’s office.
WHY YOU NEED MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEES
The trustees of a trust should record minutes of their meetings. Every trust must take minutes of meetings at least once a year. It’s not only a part of good corporate governance, it’s a legal requirement.
WHEN TO USE THIS MINUTES OF MEETING OF TRUSTEES
This Minutes of Trustees' Meeting Template can be used for most Australian trusts, including trusts with personal or corporate trustees.
You can use Legal Zebra's downloadable Template to put legally effecive Minutes of Meeting of Trustees in place, instantly.
The Legal Zebra Template is up to date and suitable for use in all States and Territories of Australia including NSW, Victoria, ACT, WA, SA, NT, Tasmania and Queensland. Many people outside Australia also use this document because it's so easy to use.
If your trusts' Minutes or resolutions are complicated, or the transaction has substantial value, you should seek personalised advice from a lawyer and accountant.
Here are some examples of when to use our Minutes of Meeting of Trustees Template...
Example: Directors resolve for a trust to enter into an important contract
We have agreed that our trustee company will enter into an important contract to develop the land that the trust owns. We want to record why the directors made this resolution and how the directors voted.
Example: Distributing trust assets
We need a simple document to note the decision of the directors of the trustee company to distribute the income of the trust. We want to record the distribution in the Minutes of Meeting of Trustees so that it is legally effective and complies with the Corporations Act and tax legislation.
Example: Resolving to appoint a new director
All of the directors of our trustee company want to appoint a new director. We need a formal resolution to do this. We want a simple template to record the decision made at our last board meeting.
