Have you ever considered what may happen to your business or company if you are unable to make decisions due to physical or mental health issues or even death? How is the business or company to continue to operate? What are your employees or family members to do when the person they depend on is suddenly unable to provide?

At Caldwell Martin Cox we have developed a number of strategies that can be put in place to assist with these scenarios. These strategies can provide protection for your business or company from the times when there is no one to sign documents or cheques, pay bills, purchase stock, buy and sell property or make decisions for the day-to-day running of your business.

Through the use of a personal Power of Attorney, Corporate Power of Attorney, the Delegation of Directorates Powers or the appointment of alternate Directors there are many ways of ensuring the long term viability of your business or company.

Also, a review of your partnership agreement or company constitution is something that should be undertaken to make sure that it still properly reflects your current circumstances and needs.

Contact our Commercial Team to discuss the strategies that can be put in place for your business or company.

Under changes to the law anyone who makes a false allegation in an application for an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) will soon face being charged with a criminal offence which will carry penalties of a fine of up to $1,100 and up to 12 months in prison.

This criminal offence will only relate to personal AVOs where the victim is not in a domestic relationship with the perpetrator. The intention is to reduce the amount of AVOs being sought on false grounds and being used as a means of personal retribution.

Other changes to AVO laws include a requirement for the courts to refer all personal AVOs to mediation, unless there are good reasons not to, and allowing Police to direct or detain people in domestic AVOs for the purpose of serving the order.
