Trust Quarterly Review (formerly The TACT Review)

This is a quarterly publication on matters of interest to trustees and executors but with the particular interests of trust corporations in mind. Articles are mainly on legal and taxation aspects of a wide range of topics. Contributions to the Review are not only from staff of trust corporations but also from a number of solicitors, accountants and barristers with particular expertise in these areas of the law. Publication of the Review is in March, June, September and December. Articles are distributed more generally through this website to enable them to be associated for both general information and research purposes, but articles published in this way do not constitute legal advice nor do they necessarily represent the views of the Association or its members. Reliance should not be placed on these articles, nor should decisions be taken on the basis of them without specific legal or taxation advice on the fact of any particular circumstance.

TACT members can read The Quarterly Review HERE.
