Software companies

As a software company, you may be considering or are already implementing changes to ensure your clients are compliant with trust account legislation.

Each State has different legislative requirements, and it can be difficult to navigate and understand the nuances and details of Queensland’s trust account framework.

Currently no accounting software is compliant with the record keeping requirements and trustees are struggling to manage their trust accounts effectively. This is an excellent opportunity in the marketplace and way to service the needs of your Queensland customers.

Other states are likely to follow suit with similar versions of statutory trusts already required in New South Wales and Western Australia. Following six independent government reviews recommending statutory trusts and the issue being discussed at a national level, it is only a matter of time before other jurisdictions follow.
