The Trusts (Amendment No. 7) (Jersey) Law 2018 (the Amendment Law), which came into force on 8 June 2018, reÊnes and further enhances Jersey’s trusts legislation, the Trusts (Jersey) Law 1984 (the Law).

Since its introduction in 1984, the Law has been amended and updated periodically, the last changes having been made in 2013. As part of the continuing work to ensure that the legislation both supports the needs of the industry and its clients and leads the way internationally, the Amendment Law further develops certain provisions of the Law.
