> Julian - I'm not sure if Scrutiny know when they are going to receive the draft 0 / 10 law
draft so if Terry agrees it might be as well to give them some indication as above.
> We are on track with 0 / 10 and I anticipate only two real areas of potential difficulty.
The first is the 'tick the box' regime on which please see the attached alternative scenarios
for you consideration. The second is the Trusts (Amendment No. 4) (Jersey) Law 200- and in
particular para 9A. on powers reserved by settlor. This could be problematic for tax
purposes and needs to be considered carefully as it seems to me that there could be tax
avoidance through this mechanism.
