Ireland: the central register of beneficial ownership

The European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Beneficial Ownership of Corporate Entities) Regulations 2016 were commenced last month: see here (pdf). The Regulations implement the requirement in Article 30(1) of the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (Directive (EU) 2015/849) for corporate and other legal entities to hold adequate, accurate and current information on their beneficial ownership. Further information is available on the Companies Registration Office website.
