The origins of Trusts…

February 7, 2013 - by Nida U.

Trust is a tool that is of somewhat similarity to a will, therefore development of this concept dates back when Roman law had developed this concept. First it was the development of the concept fidecommissum, which translates from latin “trust to commit” (fides – trust, committere – to commit). However this concept was never applied when creator would still be alive, hence just like a will.

The Trust we now know as a vehicle (legal relationship), which is used for the protection of one’s assets, property, estate, money, wealth e.t.c., originates, or shall I say was developed in England. One might say that the origins of trust are just as old as the origins of the term use. And use of land has existed since long ago, since medieval times - as long as 13th century. Why is the 13th century point of acknowledgement? This was because in this time the crusades were taking place and this is when trust was being used to convey ownership to a friend or someone trusted for the time while one would go into battle.

When FX Company executes trades from segregated accounts, while mutual funds pools funds from investors into one account with a fund manager that makes trades on behalf of the fund. These questions need to be clear and understood before even starting to think at all!

For those left out of the loop, I will explain the newest requirement for Seychelles IBC`s to keep Accounting Records

January 30, 2013 - by Nida U.

I know this is not a newbie, however this is fairly recent, so I decided to post about this for those who don’t know. In fact, there are many information websites that for some reasons are not being updated frequently enough, leaving clients in dark. With our www`s, of course, this is not the case!

Ok, down to the amendments.

As we know Seychelles IBC`s were not required to keep any “Accounting Records” (AR) at all. But the Seychelles Government had to make amendments regarding AR as a response to the initial request by the OECD.
