Trading Trusts Explained 2nd edition is a quick introductory reference that aims to guide the commercial readers through the maze that is the interaction of corporations law and trust law. 

This edition of Trading Trusts Explained considers a few significant developments in this area of the law since 2018. One is the decision of the High Court in Carter Holt Harvey Woodproducts Australia Pty Ltd v The Commonwealth of Australia. The thrust of that decision is that the priorities set out in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) apply when a company in liquidation is the trustee of a trading trust. Another is the Commonwealth Government review, Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services into corporate insolvency in Australia. The committee accepted that ‘cohesive legislative reform’ is warranted.
