This year, the UK STEP Tax, Trusts and Estates Conference will cover a general survey of taxation, probate, administration and the work of the Court of Protection. The 1975 Act continues to generate a massive body of case law and issues of mental capacity regularly pose difficulties for advisers. Both topics will be considered and to round off the day there will be a consideration of the pitfalls that can arise during the course of administering trusts and estates. All in all, a tasty menu for the autumn.

Topics include:
• Tax update
• Capacity issues for private client practitioners
• Aspects of probate and administration
• Recent decisions on the 1975 Act
• Vulnerable beneficiaries
• Tips and traps in estate and trust administration
