My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.
Bankruptcy is for an individual not a company.
If the company is the trustee that looks after the trust then you have a problem.
If it is a company that has nothing to do with the trust and is not a beneficiary of the trust then the trust assets are safe.
If you have become a bankrupt and you are a beneficiary of the trust then when there is a distribution to you from the trust you will lose the amount to the Trustee in Bankruptcy.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
