Responsible Manager Training is a great opportunity for responsible managers and compliance staff to explore key licensee obligations. This session for Responsible Managers and compliance staff will delve into breach and incident assessment, focusing on real life examples.

Do you find assessing incidents and breaches confusing? Not sure if a breach is reportable or not?
Our webinar will equip Responsible Managers and Compliance Officers to:
• Assess a breach and identify the specific legislation that has been breached;
• Determine whether a breach is reportable under the deemed significance test and when the second significance test may apply;
• Understand if a breach is excluded from reporting; and
• Record and report breaches. We will focus on real examples.

We have compiled a list of both common and out of the ordinary scenarios to explore together.

Australians donate nearly $12 billion to charities annually, so it’s important for their advisors to understand their clients’ giving habits, charitable interests and giving goals. Talking about philanthropy with clients is not just an effective way to help optimise their tax obligations; it is an essential chance to connect on their most fundamental values.

Kate Bowditch from Australian Philanthropic Services (APS) and Dylan Smith of Philanthropy Australia will give an overview of the Australian structured giving landscape, explain the most popular structures for charitable giving, being private and public ancillary funds, and discuss how engaging in conversations around philanthropy can deepen relationships with your clients and the next generation.

APS is a not-for-profit organisation that inspires effective philanthropy and provides education and practical support for individuals and advisers.

Philanthropy Australia is the national peak body for philanthropy. Its members include trusts, foundations, families, individual donors, professional advisors, companies, intermediaries and not-for-profit organisations. PA provides advocacy, networking and resources to the philanthropic and not-for-profit sector, as well as information and research for the Australian community.

Preserving Your Legacy: A wake-up call for Financial Planning Business Owners
Join us for an essential session that demands your attention as a business owner or director. Genevieve Hehir from LSW Lawyers will uncover the threats that could jeopardise your business. Gain valuable insights through real-life examples of businesses facing challenges due to unforeseen gaps in their Estate Planning.
This webinar is especially tailored for Financial Planning Businesses recognising the real danger of business being unable to operate or be sold. Whilst sole director and single-adviser practices face higher risks, this is also valuable for larger practices.
In recent instances, we’ve observed that despite advising small business clients on Estate Planning, advisers often overlook their own situations which has put their business at risk. This session’s insights are not just beneficial for you; they will help you with your small business clients.
