ASSESSMENT TASK 3 – Workplace Project 1

An audit of the trust accounts held by your office has identified some discrepancies. Considering the seriousness of this situation, your manager has asked you to meet and discuss the arrangements you have implemented to maintain and monitor these accounts.

Using information provided in the learner resources (or your own workplace documents), prepare a report that discusses the maintenance and monitoring of trust accounts.

The report should focus on:

  • processes established to ensure separation of trust accounts from other accounts
  • relevant trust account requirements according to legislation (you must include what records are to be kept, how they must be kept and where they are to be kept)
  • required security associated with trust accounts
  • processes to monitor and supervise staff activities in relation to trust account transactions
  • monitoring of trust accounts and actions taken when discrepancies are identified
  • breaches under your state/territory’s property legislation
  • the impact breaches under legislation will have on agency brand, consumer confidence and legal penalties
  • any other details which support the integrity of the processes which you have implemented to maintain trust accounts.
