The Trust (Amendment) Act, 2007 provides for compulsory registration of international (or "offshore") trusts with Belize's International Trust Registry. The law also provides that all offshore trusts governed by Belize law must have a Trust Agent resident in Belize whose office would serve as the Office of the Trust. Trusts created before the law was passed had a registration deadline of June 14th, 2008. Please note that an international trust which is duly registered under the Trust (Amendment) Act, 2007 shall be exempt from any tax in Belize.
The complexity of drafting and managing a trust vary with each trust and it is difficult for us to quote a standard rate. However, if you provide us with details of the trust we can provide you with a quotation. Please contact us for more information.
