Australian Law firm providing legal documents online

Welcome to Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors

Building Docs online who is responsible

 

  • Legal Consolidated is responsible for the documents.
  • Your client becomes our client.
  • There is a direct client relationship between us and your client.
  • We are the only law firm in Australia providing legal documents online.

Legal Consolidated website vs non-law firm website

  • Over 6,400 Australian accountants and advisers build legal documents on our website.
  • This is for their clients.
  • Because we are a law firm, your client becomes a client of the law firm.
  • Therefore, our law firm is responsible for the documents built on our website.
  • Every document comes with a letter addressed to your client confirming that we authored the legal document.

In contrast, a non-law firm website:

  • merely resells a lawyer’s template; and
  • therefore, there is no law firm responsible for the documents you built for your clients

Non-law firm’s websites merely re-sell a lawyer’s template – dangerous

Non-law firm websites buy, beg, borrow or steal a law firm’s template. 

Often the templates are never updated or monitored by a law firm. In Australia, a law firm is not responsible for ‘re-sold’ templates. You, as the accountant and your client, are on your own.

Worse still the adviser and accountant are providing ‘legal advice’. This is because the template is resold by non-lawyers. There is no direct relationship between the lawyer that first provided the template and the end-user, being the accountant’s client. ‘Tax agent services’ does not extend to giving legal advice: s90-5(1) TASA 2009. Tax agents are not protected by non-law firm websites.

ACT and South Australian tax agents using non-law firm websites breach:

  • s16(1) & 21(2)(b) Legal Profession Act 2006 (ACT); and
  • Legal Practitioners Act 1981 (SA)

Using a non-law firm website breaches ‘preparing documents that create or regulate legal rights’.

In Western Australia, a non-law firm website breaches the ‘preparing of any deed, instrument or writing dealing with real or personal estate’.

Even the supply of Trust deeds and Employment Contracts breach the law. A tax agent building trust deeds on a non-law firm website breach the law: sections 21(2)(d) and 21(2)(b) Legal Practitioners Act 1981 (SA).

Incorporating a company on a non-law firm website breaches the law because a company needs (or should have) a constitution. A constitution is a ‘deed’. Only lawyers can legally prepare deeds. Similarly, a POA is a deed. So an accountant or adviser building a POA on a non-law firm website, including a website provided by a State government, breaches the law.

We do not re-sell a lawyer’s template. We are the law firm.

Before using a non-law website consider:

  1. Who is doing the drafting? The Family Trust Deeds, Power of Attorneys, 3-Generation Testamentary Trust Wills, Loan Agreements, Leases and the 100s of other documents are drafted by the Australian law firm Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors. While accountants and clients may type in answers to the questions, the law firm controls the logic flow, question, hints, training videos and systems. We retain copyright of our documents and we are responsible for the legal document. The law firm is drafting the online document.
  2. Who is responsible for the drafting and its legal correctness? The law firm developed and controls the system. The law firm provides locked PDF documents of the finished document together with a covering letter on law firm letterhead confirming that we prepared and drafted the legal document.
  3. Where is the client’s ‘personal information’ and data stored?  All information is stored on the law firm’s website. Your client retains legal professional privilege.
  4. Can non-lawyers charge to prepare legal documents? No, they cannot. However, a professional person such as a financial adviser and accountant can charge for the time in giving the relevant financial planning and accounting advice. For example, much of the work in Estate Planning is understanding the client’s tax position, financial planning, superannuation, insurance and business structures.

All documents built on Legal Consolidated’s website have personal lawyer sign-off

Non-qualified suppliers of legal documents claim that their Deeds are ‘signed-off’ by an Australian lawyer.

This suggests that a lawyer has approved the legal document you are building online.

However, there can only be ‘lawyer sign off’ when the legal document is prepared directly on a law firm’s website, such as Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors’ website.

This is not the case with non-law firm websites.

Be careful with websites that are not law firms. Ask these non-law firm websites:

  • who is responsible for the legal document?
  • where is the covering letter, on law firm letterhead, confirming that the law firm authored and is responsible for the Deed?

A re-sold lawyer template is:

  • different from purchasing a legal document directly from the law firm’s website
  • notsigned-off’ by a lawyer.

With all Legal Consolidated Deeds you get a covering letter. It is signed by a partner of our law firm. It confirms that Legal Consolidated authored the legal document.

Are accountants and advisers giving legal advice when building legal documents on our website?

Our law firm’s website empowers accountants and financial advisers to build legal documents for their clients. Documents include Trust Deeds, Self-Managed Super Deeds, Companies and 3-Generation Testamentary Trust Wills.

Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors is the only law firm in Australia providing online legal documents. On our website, you deal directly with a law firm. We provide:

a. Legal Professional Privilege

b. legal advice and help to answer the online questions – telephone us

c. letter confirming that Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors authored and is responsible for the document

d. the law firm is responsible for the legal document including:

* the questions, hints and training videos

* dynamic logic flows – the next question changes depending on the previous answer

* the answers you type in (e.g. if the accountant or adviser incorrectly misspells the client’s name we are responsible)

* the legal document, minutes and covering letter

* the signing of the documents

Am I giving legal advice when I build a document on a law firm’s website?

You are not giving legal advice when you build documents on our law firm’s website. You are a  ‘mere scribe’.  See:

  • Attorney-General v Quill Wills Ltd (1990) 3 WAR 500
  • Legal Practice Board v Computer Accounting and Tax Pty Ltd [2007] WASC 184
  • Cornall v Nagle [1995] 2 VR 188 at 210
  • Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (Cth)
  • Sinclair v C of T [2010] AATA 902
  • Andre Agassi v Robinson & Bar Council & Law Society [2005] EWCA 1507

The Tax Institute’s Estate & Business Succession Planning, 7th edition, states on page 9:

‘Work that is undertaken in association with the law or legal practice will not necessarily constitute engaging in legal practice. Examples include:

* clerical or administration tasks

* selling legal documents; and

* advising of incidental legal requirements by a person in the pursuit of an occupation other than law, eg tax agents advising on the requirements of tax legislation.’

For Estate Planning what does the accountant and adviser put on the Tax Invoice?

Q: We have just completed our first Estate Planning bundle for our client.

It is good that Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors provides a written a letter on its letterhead. The letter is addressed directly to the client. It clearly confirms the Legal Consolidated is the sole author, owner and is responsible for the legal documents.

We are about to invoice the client for our time as a scribe. This is for typing in the answers to the questions.

What do you consider is appropriate wording, to have on our invoice, for being a scribe?

A: I don’t think you are looking at it from the correct perspective. On the back of many accountant and financial planner’s business cards you see a list of services. One of them is often ‘Estate Planning’.

Estate Planning is much more than a Will and POAs. In fact, a Will and POAs are, with respect, only a minor part of a lifetime Estate Planning process that accountants and advisers embark upon for each of their clients. For example, is not the job of the adviser to 1. create wealth 2. preserve wealth and 3. transfer wealth at the correct time, such as divorce, death and succession planning?

Further, many aspects of Estate Planning are the sole province on the financial planner. This includes Reversionary Pensions, superannuation and the like. Similarly, only accountants can give advice on the taxation implications and preparations.

I would have thought that on your Tax Invoice you would put “Estate Planning $6,500” or whatever fee you charge as a financial planner or accountant. And then add incidental costs such as the costs of the insurance broker, finance broker fees, estate planning lawyer fees, valuers fees and the like.

Who is better at Estate Planning – lawyer or adviser?

I had a call from adviser in Sydney. His client died. His children rang up the adviser. They claim that Dad’s estate is worth $100k. But the death taxes was $32k. 

I found that hard to believe.

The adviser told me that the only asset of the estate was a $100k in life insurance in the Super. Because the children are over 18 there is a 32% non-dependency tax

I asked why there was no Superannuation Testamentary Trust in the Will to reduce or wash out the tax on the super. In fact, I telephoned the lawyer that put the Will together. He is a well respected franchise lawyer that I know. To protect him I will call him Robert. This is how the call went:

Brett: Robert with this client how come you didn’t put a Superannuation Testamentary Trust in his Will.

Robert: Brett as you know I only practice in franchise law.  I didn’t know that there was tax on super at death. I did put a note in the covering letter stating that I don’t do tax. In future when I get another Will to do, which is not that often, I will add to the note to say that I don’t give advice in tax and superannuation.

Brett: But Robert did you speak with the client’s accountant and lawyer?

Robert: I didn’t see much need to do so. I am the lawyer, not them.

The financial planner and accountant is the centre of the universe. Those professionals get the team together. They source the best the risk adviser, the family lawyer, the tax lawyer, the share broker, the finance broker etc… Estate Planning is controlled by the accountant and the financial planner. Someone has to be in charge.

Can buy a template over the Internet and change it in MS Word?

It is not legal for a non-lawyer to update or manipulate a legal document in MS Word.

See Legal Practice Board v Computer Accounting and Tax Pty Ltd [2007] WASC 184.

In this case, the accountant purchased a trust deed template. The trust deed came from a law firm. However, the accountant, in MS Word, populated the template. This is with the client’s name and address.

The court held that the accounting firm is breaching the relevant legislation. It is not a law firm and is not allowed to prepare legal documents.

Further, neither the accountant nor the client had legal professional indemnity insurance. This is in regard to any issues that arise out of the trust instrument.

This is why all Legal Consolidated documents are delivered to you as a locked PDF. If you need to update them we give you a voucher to update the document on our website. We control the questions, hints, logic flow and the finished legal document. We provide a letter addressed to your client to confirm that Legal Consolidated prepared the document. Legal Consolidated is responsible for the document.

I ‘found’ a Division 7A Loan Agreement in MS Word. Can I put in the client’s details and email it to them?

Division 7A is the third highest area of negligence claims against accountants.

I am gobsmacked as to why an accounting house would take the risk of providing legal documents to clients.

If an accountant populates a Word document then the accountant is liable for the legal document. That is breaking the law. And the accounting house has no insurance to cover any problems with that legal document. See Legal Practice Board v Computer Accounting and Tax Pty Ltd [2007] WASC 184.

Instead, build a Division 7A Loan Deed on our website. Legal Consolidated is then responsible for the deed. All our documents are provided:

  • as a locked PDF
  • with a covering letter addressed to your client confirming that Legal Consolidated prepared the legal document.

What about a financial planner’s Dealer Group?

AFS licensees provide a list of ‘financial products’ you offer your clients. Our law firm’s online legal documents are not investment products.
