Declaration of Trust in Relation to Shares

This document can be used by the registered holder of shares in a company to create a trust of those shares in favour of one or more beneficiaries.

Through a trust, shares can be protected before they pass on to their intended beneficiary. This may be useful where, for example, the beneficiaries wish to preserve their privacy, or where the beneficiaries are minors and are therefore incapable of holding the shares in their own right.

Our template declaration of trust document is just one of many documents composed by legal experts which we offer. As well as declaring the trust, the document also sets out the associated rights of the beneficiaries. You do not need to concern yourself about the legal technicalities, as all this is dealt with for you. Your only task is to fill in your personal details to complete the document.
