The Trustee (Amendment) Act 2021 (the "Amendment") came into force on 13 May 2021 and greatly enhances BVI's trusts legislation.
The Amendment inserts a new section 58B to the Trustee Act, expanding the court's jurisdiction to vary, add to, revoke or replace any provision of a trust. It builds on existing rules that allow the court to approve, on behalf of minor and unborn beneficiaries and other persons who are unable to approve themselves, arrangements that amend trusts.
