One of the most significant changes made by the Trusts Act 2019 relates to the disclosure of trust information to beneficiaries, particularly the imposition of obligations on trustees to take proactive steps when it comes to disclosure of certain trust information. This module will take a practical approach, covering the obligations imposed by the Act and what steps trustees should be taking to ensure that those obligations are fulfilled, along with case studies to illustrate the new rules in action.

Electronic paper

The disclosure of trust information to beneficiaries has been a hot topic for both trustees and beneficiaries in recent years, particularly since the introduction of new disclosure rules under the Trusts Act 2019 (Trusts Act).

Settlors and trustees have raised concerns about the new rules, particularly that they may give beneficiaries a heightened sense of entitlement to information and that the new rules may encourage disgruntled or remote beneficiaries to make broad, sweeping requests for information that require significant time and cost to resolve.

The purpose of this paper is to explain how the rules have changed, address some of the questions and issues that have arisen since the new rules were introduced, and provide some practical guidance on what trustees should be doing to satisfy their obligations and other steps that may be taken to address some of the most common concerns.
