UBO register introduced in London !

Tab Title 1

Tab Title 2

Tab Title 3

Whilst the Luxembourg law proposal of 6 December 2017, which introduced the UBO register imposed under the fourth EU anti-money laundering directive (2015/849/EC, the “Fourth Directive”) into Luxembourg domestic law, is still pending (please see our article of 19 December 2017), the EU has reached a political agreement to further tighten the rules concerning UBO registers, whose agreement should result in the fifth anti-money laundering directive (the “Fifth Directive”).

According to the limited information presently available about this political agreement, each Member State will be required to make its national UBO registers for entities operating in its jurisdiction publicly “accessible”. In addition, the Member States’ UBO registers will be interconnected.

***

Tiberghien Luxembourg remains committed to monitoring the progress of the UBO register’s implementation within Luxembourg (and the other Member States).
