Register of Unit HoldersA Register of Unit Holders is used to keep track of unit holders and is critical for Unit Trusts from an accounting perspective.
When creating a trust there must be a record of all unit holders of the fixed trust as the trustee is responsible for keeping track of all these details.
Maintaining this record will allow the trustee to identify who the owners of the units are, their holdings, and for how long the units are/were held.

Further, having this information will be helpful to refer to when a meeting is held, or if any other issues arise.
