Guernsey register of beneficial ownership

17 Feb 2017

Guernsey's Policy and Resources Committee has recently submitted its proposals for the establishment of a Register of Beneficial Ownership for consideration by the States of Guernsey at its sitting on 15 February 2017.

Following consultation papers issued in May 2015 and 2016, the States has now approved the Committee's proposals in principle and issued draft legislation for the establishment of a central Register with the stated aim of maintaining Guernsey's commitment to meeting international standards aimed at tackling financial crime.
