Everything you always wanted to know about fiduciary/court accountings but were afraid to ask.  
Presented by Francine Lee

About the Presentation

Acting as a fiduciary isn’t always easy.  A fiduciary owes many duties to the beneficiaries and a breach of a duty can result in liability.  One of these duties is the duty to account.  In our litigious society, having an accounting is one of the best ways a fiduciary can protect itself from liability.  From the beneficiary’s perspective, an accounting protects the beneficiary because it forces the fiduciary to either:  (1) Admit that he or she can’t account due to a failure of recordkeeping; (2) Truthfully account, providing the beneficiaries with evidence of any potential wrongdoings; or (3) Falsify the accounts, which the beneficiaries can then disprove.

This session will review:
- The fiduciary duty to account
- Top ten reasons for producing a fiduciary accounting
- Tips to look out for when reviewing an accounting
- Differences between tax and accounting
- Accountings and litigation
