However, it is important for advisers to understand when establishing a trust for clients how these rights may impact trust assets.As stated earlier, a trustee usually has a right to indemnify itself for costs and expenses in administering the trust and/or dealing with the trust assets for the beneficiaries’ benefit.The purpose of a liquidating trust is liquidation as soon as the circumstances will permit.The purpose of setting up a trust is usually to protect those assets from either the bankruptcy of an individual or the insolvency of a company.This appears to protect the trust assets from the hands of a liquidator of the insolvent corporate trustee.However, the impact of the insolvency and a liquidator appointment as the controlling officer managing the wind down of the insolvent can present problems for the trust itself and for any incumbent trustee of the trust due to the insolvent’s right of indemnity, which is secured by an equitable lien over the trust assets.Therefore, the Judge found that a liquidator did not have an inherent power to sell trust assets under the power construed in section 477(2)(c) of the Corporations Act.To assist liquidators with the position, the Judge stated that a liquidator would be justified in applying to court to be appointed as receiver and manager of the trust assets to realise its equitable interest (in the assets) as the precedent that a trustee has an equitable lien over the assets remained.

Sub-section C relates specifically to the power of sale for a liquidator.Key powers under a trust deed can include: Commonly a trust deed automatically disqualifies a corporate trustee from acting as the trustee upon the insolvency of the trustee.The result usually means that the insolvent continues to act as a ‘bare trustee’ or a replacement trustee is appointed to continue to administer the trust’s affairs.The liquidator also needs to explore its power to sell trust assets under the equitable lien it holds over those assets.A liquidator often looks to its powers under section 477(2)(c) of the Corporations Act 2001 and/or directions from the court for guidance.
