France has announced that its Register of Trusts will be made publicly available on the internet from 30th June 2016. The database which will be fully searchable will give the names of trustees and beneficiaries. The French Tax Authority currently has 16,000 offshore trusts on its database which have a connection with France either because they own French assets or have French resident settlors or beneficiaries. This is unprecedented and is likely to put pressure on other countries to follow as well as cause difficulties for offshore financial institutions. It is likely this will be in breach of Article 8 of the EU Convention on Human Rights and is actionable at law. Anyone who wishes to discuss this further is invited to contact David Anderson of these offices.
We have our summer day out on Thursday 23rd June and the office will be shut.
