Casual Friday Donations

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Every Friday at McVeagh Fleming is a "Casual Friday" when smart, comfortable attire can be worn on the condition that staff who are in casual clothing pay a donation.  The Partners of the firm match the staff's contribution dollar for dollar each week.  For every $1,000.00 reached, a draw of the participating staff is held and a donation is made towards a charity of the staff member's choosing. Read more

Changes to Enduring Powers of Attorney

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

On 16 March 2017 changes to the Protection of Personal Property Rights Act 1988 come into effect.  Some of these changes affect how Enduring Powers of Attorney ("EPOA") are made, and others affect how they operate.  If you have any unsigned EPOAs drafted and they are not fully executed by this date, they will be invalid and will need re-drafting.  EPOAs fully executed prior to 16 March 2017 remain valid.  Please urgently contact us if you wish to finalise documents prior to 16 March 2017. Read more
