Is a PAF a good option for you, your family, chosen cause or clients?

A PAF may be a good idea if:

  • You wish to set up a system of giving that extends past your death and allows for controlled, flexible giving.
  • You want a structure that involves your family or children in your giving.
  • You wish to capitalise on the tax deduction opportunities available through a PAF.
  • You would like to devote considerable amounts of time and or money to a charity into the future.
  • You don’t want to start a charity or participate in services or activities personally. You primarily just want to provide financial support.

Our Great Lawyer Guarantee

We want to be part of your team over the long term. We'll achieve this by sticking closely to the following principles:

  • We'll listen carefully to understand what you want to achieve. Then we'll thoroughly explain our advice and step you through the documents. You can be sure you'll know the full consequences.
  • Our lawyers work as a team, so someone will always be available to answer your questions, or point you in the right direction. You will also benefit from a range of perspectives and experience.
  • One of our key goals is to pass on as much knowledge as we can, so you can make your own informed decisions. We want to make you truly independent.
  • We only do what we're good at. You can be confident that we know what we're doing and won't pass on the cost of our learning.
  • For advice and documents, we provide a fixed or capped quote so you don’t take price risk. If you're in a dispute, we'll map out the process and costs so you know what to expect.
  • We're not in this game for our egos. We're in it for a front row seat to witness your success.

We measure our success on how efficiently we have facilitated your objectives, enhanced your relationships, and reduced the level of stress for all involved.
