1. Rules for Trusts (including Family Trusts)


1.1 The qualification criteria for the recognition of Trusts are as follows:


1.1.1 The trust deed must define the beneficiaries and the proportion of their entitlement to receive distributions; A WRITTEN RECORD of the names of the beneficiaries or the use of a defined class of natural person satisfies the requirement for identification; A WRITTEN RECORD of fixed percentages of entitlement or the use of a formula for calculating entitlement satisfies the need for defining proportion of benefit;


1.1.2 The trustees must have no discretion on the above mentioned terms of the trust deed except where it is a family trust. In case of a family trust only the trustees may have a discretion with respect to the above mentioned terms and then only within the confines of the discretion awarded them by the trust deed; and


1.1.3 On winding-up or termination of the trust, all accumulated Economic Interest must be transferred to the beneficiaries or to an entity representing the interest of the Participants or class of beneficiaries.
