Seychelles International Trust

Must the settlor be disclosed publicly?

No information regarding the personal details of the settlor, or any beneficiaries are required to be made public, with an exception being made for Seychelles resident beneficiaries.

Nonetheless it should be noted that the 2011 amendments to the International Trusts Acts requires trustees to keep an International Trust Register at their place of business wherein the full name, address, nationality OR place of incorporation of each trustee, beneficiary, or settlor is recorded. This International Trust Register IS confidential. It is NOT a part of any public registry, and NOT accessible to the public. This record is accessible ONLY to the Trustee, and parties to the trust according to the terms set out by the trust deed. Disclosure of any information or document relating to an international trust is strictly prohibited by law, except under an injunction of the Seychelles Supreme Court on application made by the Seychelles Attorney General and only for the purpose of an inquiry or trial into orrelating to the trafficking of narcotics and dangerous drugs, arms trafficking or money laundering.
