Trust Administration

Maintain important filing deadlines and decedent personal and financial information while ensuring deadlines are met.

Trust Administration


Workflow follows the progress of a Trust Administration engagement in real time. Moving through steps such as “Trust Administration” and “Post Tax Filings” prompt the user to enter important data and auto-assigns tasks. As data is entered, reports are automatically updated in real time. Use the Probate workflow and Trust Administration workflow together to track progress of both matters for a single decedent.

D. Brash Consulting LLC workflows may be installed in any live Actionstep system. They are ready for use upon installation, however, the workflows are completely customizable. Each workflow comes with a 60 minute tweaking session after installation.

D. Brash Consulting LLC will customize the pre-installed document templates listed under “Document Automation” with your firm’s electronic letterhead as part of the flat fee cost of the installed workflow (a $300 added value).
