ABOUT ULC

The Uniform Law Commission (ULC), also known as National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL), now in its 118th year, provides states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law.

ULC members must be lawyers, qualified to practice law. They are practicing lawyers, judges, legislators and legislative staff and law professors, who have been appointed by state governments as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to research, draft and promote enactment of uniform state laws in areas of state law where uniformity is desirable and practical.

• ULC strengthens the federal system by providing rules and procedures that are consistent from state to state but that also reflect the diverse experience of the states.

• ULC statutes are representative of state experience, because the organization is made up of representatives from each state, appointed by state government.

• ULC keeps state law up-to-date by addressing important and timely legal issues.

• ULC’s efforts reduce the need for individuals and businesses to deal with different laws as they move and do business in different states.

• ULC’s work facilitates economic development and provides a legal platform for foreign entities to deal with U.S. citizens and businesses.

• Uniform Law Commissioners donate thousands of hours of their time and legal and drafting expertise every year as a public service, and receive no salary or compensation for their work.

• ULC’s deliberative and uniquely open drafting process draws on the expertise of commissioners, but also utilizes input from legal experts, and advisors and observers representing the views of other legal organizations or interests that will be subject to the proposed laws.

• ULC is a state-supported organization that represents true value for the states, providing services that most states could not otherwise afford or duplicate.

UNIFORM STATUTORY TRUST ENTITY ACT

Prefatory Note

Introduction. In large part because of uncertainty over the legal status of the business trust at common law, use of the common-law trust as a mode of business organization declined over the course of the twentieth century. Today, most commercial enterprise that is not organized as a sole proprietorship makes use of the partnership, limited liability company, or corporate forms of organization.

To address the legal uncertainty surrounding the common-law business trust, at least thirty states have enacted legislation that validates the trust as a permissible form of business organization. But the entity that arises under the more recent of these statutes is better understood as a “statutory business trust,” “statutory trust entity,” or “statutory trust” than as a common-law business trust with statutory validation.

A statutory trust differs from a common-law trust in important respects. A common-law trust, whether its purpose is donative or commercial, arises from private action without the involvement of a public official. Because a common-law trust is not a juridical entity, it must sue and be sued, own property, and transact in the name of the trustee and in the trustee’s capacity as such. By contrast, a statutory trust is a juridical entity, separate from its trustees and beneficial owners, that has capacity to sue and be sued, own property, and transact in its own name. A statutory trust is formed by the filing of a certificate of trust by a public official, typically the Secretary of State, in the public record.

The modern business trust statutes do not prohibit use of a common-law trust for commercial purposes. Instead, such a statute offers the transactional planner an additional option, which is governed by the act. Common-law trusts, whether donative or commercial, remain subject to the principles of law and equity applicable to private and charitable trusts.

Since the 1980s, statutory trust entities have thrived in a variety of niches, particularly in the organization of mutual funds and in the practice of asset securitization. See Steven L.

Schwarcz, Commercial Trusts as Business Organizations: Unraveling the Mystery, 58 Bus. Law.

559 (2003); John H. Langbein, The Secret Life of the Trust: The Trust as an Instrument of Commerce, 107 Yale L.J. 165 (1997); Sheldon A. Jones, Laura M. Moret & James M. Storey, The Massachusetts Business Trust and Registered Investment Companies, 13 Del. J. Corp. L.

421 (1988). The statutory trust has also come to be used in certain tax-advantaged real estate transactions. See, e.g., Rev. Rul. 2004-86, 2004-33 I.R.B. 191.

The primary stimulus for the drafting of the Uniform Statutory Trust Entity Act has been the increasing popularity of statutory trust entities. Increasing use of the statutory trust as a mode of business organization has led to a recognition that in many states the status of such trusts is unclear and that much of the existing legislation is out-of-date or incomplete. The case law on statutory trusts is sparse.

Models for Drafting. Although the Uniform Statutory Trust Entity Act is the first Uniform Act on the subject of statutory business trusts, comprehensive statutory trust legislation exists in several states. Notable examples include the statutory trust acts of Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Hampshire, Nevada, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Virginia, all of which were consulted in the drafting of this act.
