Trust law reform comes a step closer

7 Sep 2022

We welcome the announcement in the Scottish Government’s Programme for Government of an intention to introduce a trusts and succession bill in 2022-23.  This is designed to implement the recommendations in our 2014 Report on Trust Law and will modernise the law of trusts so that it is fit for contemporary conditions.  This will be of benefit to individuals and commerce, and will keep Scotland competitive in retaining and attracting trust business.

The Programme for Government can be seen here and our 2014 Trust Law report is here
