Top 20 ClearLaw articles of all time

Danni Kirwan, Marketing Executive

ClearLaw is a monthly legal bulletin sent to all Cleardocs customers by email. The articles in the ClearLaw bulletin are written by solicitors at Maddocks and cover topics related to Cleardocs products, or broader legal topics such as changes in legislation.

Since Cleardocs launched, we have published almost 300 articles. Every ClearLaw article published is available on our site, and you can search the archive to find articles related to a certain topic or keyword.

The ClearLaw archive is a great source of information about Cleardocs products and related legislation – from the basics like outlining the differences between the Cleardocs trusts to complex SMSF issues. Whether you’re the trustee of an SMSF, or someone wanting to start a small business (or both) there are sure to be articles relevant to you.

Recently, we conducted a review of ClearLaw articles and came up with the top 20 most popular articles of all time. As you can see, our visitors love reading about SMSF’s! Most popular by far is an article on transition to retirement pensions published back in 2006, and SMSF Borrowing has been, and continues to be, a popular topic.

Below is the list of the 20 most popular articles, to read the full article simply click on the title. If you have any suggestion for articles or topics for ClearLaw we would love to hear them, please let us know in the comments section.
