Parties to enter a trust in Georgia  

As mentioned above, the trust in Georgia has to be established between three parties. The procedure of company formation in Georgia in this case will include the following:

the grantor – or the person who wants to establish the trust;

the trustee – the entity that will have the right to manage the assets under the respective trust;

the beneficiary – the person who is entitled to obtain benefits from the respective trust

It is important to know that the trustee can be represented by either a natural person or a legal entity operating in Georgia. At the same time, persons who want to set up a trust should know that the trust’s assets can be represented by various types of properties or parts of a property. If the latter option applies, it is necessary to specify the parts of property that are included in the trustOur team of company formation agents in Georgia can provide further assistance on this topic.
