Statutory Trust Accounts

Accounts for custodians who are legally required to hold money for clients.

What is a statutory trust account?

Statutory trust accounts are for specific groups or organisations that need to hold money for clients.  As the requirements for how these trust accounts operate differs depending on your type of business, we have 2 options available: Solicitor’s Trust Accounts and Agent’s Statutory Trust Accounts.

A Solicitor’s Trust Account is a specialised account for Queensland solicitors who are legally required to hold client monies in a statutory trust.  It can be used  for conveyancing, probate work, litigation settlements, commercial transactions (e.g. Floating Companies) and matrimonial money held under Court Order whilst holding client funds on trust.
