Registration of trusts
A trust is a legal arrangement whereby control over property is transferred to a person or organisation (the trustee) for the benefit of someone else (the beneficiary). You can register two types of trusts, namely the inter-vivos trust and the testamentary trust.  The inter-vivos trust is created between living persons, whereas the testamentary trust is derived from the valid will of a deceased person.
