BUSINESS TRUST ORGANIZATION

no comments

 An unincorporated organization created and managed by “trustees” for the benefit and profit of persons who hold or may acquire transferable certificates. Similar to stock certificates of a corporation, trust certificates provide individual holders evidence of interest in a trust estate.

A Business Trust Organization often is called a “common-law trust” but this phrase is not descriptive of any of the peculiar characteristics of such organizations.

The basis for the terminology “common-law trust” is that they are created under the common law of contracts and do not depend upon any statute.

As indicated by its name, a Business Trust is an estate adapted to business or commercial activities. Reduced to its bare essentials, the Business Trust Organization consists of a combination of capital vested in trustees who manage the entity profitably for trust holders of beneficial interest.
