The recent passing of iconic chiropractor Wally Robb has brought
a young couple to the North. Jay Jevons and Robyn King were
chosen by Wally to take over his practice and continue providing a high
standard of care for his much loved patients.
Jay is from Birmingham and was recently working in a large multi-
practitioner clinic in Manchester. His special interest is boxing in which he
started competing from the age of 12 going on to win numerous regional
and national titles, and boxing internationally.
Robyn grew up in Takapuna into a "tennis" family. By the age of 14
Robyn was playing inter-club and competing in national tournaments
representing North Harbour at the National teams and individuals events.
Upon leaving Takapuna Grammar Robyn accepted a full tennis scholarship
to Idaho State University, USA.

What does this mean for Trusts?
The budget announcement earlier this year also
discussed that they would look very closely at
addressing some of the concerns associated
with Trust's including social assistance, asset
testing subsidies, tax sheltering and creditor
protection. These projects are underway
and we are expecting a tightening up on the
benefits of Trusts.
So why have a Trust? The real reasons and
benefits of having a Trust are still there but
they do come with some caution.
1 Security during breakups -- Those planning
on entering a relationship can protect their
assets in a trust which keeps those pre-
relationship assets as separate property.
There are exceptions to this and the Family
Court are increasingly willing to bust open
2 Excluding a wayward child -- The trust can be
set up to include only certain beneficiaries
so a wayward child can be excluded. You can
still do this in a will but wills are easier to
challenge than trusts.
3 Protecting assets from beyond the grave --
By giving your offspring only a beneficial
interest in the Trust's assets (rather than
giving them the assets themselves), any of
your children's current or future spouses
can't take their share of those assets in a
relationship property settlement.
4 Tax savings -- while the top individual tax
rates are now aligned with the Trust's tax
rate, Trusts can still provide tax savings
through splitting the income of the Trust to
various family members at lower tax rates.
5 Protecting Assets -- this currently is still one
of the main reasons for a Trust. By the Trust
owning the assets and you impoverishing
yourself of them, any exposure that you have
to liabilities is confined to you. There are
exceptions to this and we believe that being
able to defy your creditors by protecting your
assets is likely to change.
If you would like advice on Trust's, please
