Beneficial Ownership Register Ireland – 2019 Regulations

All companies incorporated in Ireland have been obliged to hold and maintain an Internal Beneficial Ownership Register since 2016.

On 22 March 2019 the European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Beneficial Ownership of Corporate Entities) Regulations 2019 (“2019 Regulations”) commenced which:

(a) replicated in their entirety the previous obligations in terms of the Internal Beneficial Ownership Register (the “BOR”); and

(b) announced the commencement of new Regulations requiring companies to make publicly available the information contained within their BOR.

See link to our briefing paper which provides a summary of the 2019 Regulations; key dates, and the implications on both companies and individuals in the event of non-compliance.
