Business Barbados

The laws relating to Trusts in Barbados have their foundation in British common law and rules of equity. Inter-vivos Trusts (those created during the lifetime of the Settlor) are governed by two pieces of legislation in Barbados – the Trustee Act Cap 250, 1985, and The International Trust Act Cap 245, 1995. The International Financial Services Act Cap 325, is the legislation under which banks and trust companies offering such international financial services in Barbados are regulated.
