Trusts in Nevis
We register Trust and act as Trustee. Our fee is $1500 per year plus cost (example courier cost)

Most Trust Deeds are crafted for that specific Trust. The Trust Deed or Declaration of Trust have to be prepared in accordance with Nevis' Trust Legislation. That means that it must be done by someone who is familiar with Nevis' Trust laws and will have to be vetted by a Nevis solicitor to ensure that it is compliant.
Lawyers vetting fee is approximately $350 per hour.

Notwithstanding the above, we do have a sample standard trust document that you can use (if it suits the purpose). This will save Lawyer vetting fees.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Longitude and is located in the Leeward Islands approximately 2,000 km south-east of Miami. Mount Nevis lies in the centre of the 92 sq km Island and towers 985 metres. Columbus sighted and named the Island on his second voyage in 1493. The climate is nearly perfect and the variation in altitude and soil conditions creates a natural garden of tropical vegetation ranging from rain to near desert.

POPULATION
The population of Nevis is 8,500 with 35,000 residents in the neighbouring island of St. Kitts.

POLITICAL STRUCTURE
Nevis was a British colony from 1628 until 1983 when it became independent and joined the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. The Federation is an active member of the British Commonwealth. Nevis is a vigorous democracy based upon the British Parliamentary system with an elected local assembly. An independent study has ranked the Federation of St.

Kitts and Nevis as one of the ten freest nations in the world for seven years running.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND ECONOMY
Excellent communications facilities offer direct dialling from the US, Canada and Europe. World-wide telex, facsimile and telegraph services are operated by Cable and Wireless. Direct air services to North America are provided by BWIA and Air Canada on a scheduled basis. LIAT, WINAIR and American Eagle link Nevis with other Caribbean Islands. From Europe, service is provided by British Airways, Lufthansa, Air France and Iberia via stops in neighbouring Islands.

Nevis does not have a deep-water port; however, it has an important mooring basin for yachts.

The economy has traditionally depended on the growing and processing of sugar cane; decreasing world prices have hurt the industry in recent years. Tourism and export oriented manufacturing have begun to assume larger roles, although they still only represent approximately 7% and 4% respectively of GDP. Growth in the construction and tourism sectors has spurred the economic expansion of the Island. Most food is imported.

LANGUAGE
English is the official and commercial language of the Island. Nevis enjoys a literacy rate of 96%, one of the highest in the Western Hemisphere.

Eastern Caribbean Dollar, which is fixed to the US Dollar.
