Register of Overseas Entities - Verification and Registration Services

The UK's new regime for the registration of overseas entities holding UK land has been implemented by the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022 with a view to preventing the use of UK land for money laundering.


Under the regime, any overseas entity that owns UK real estate, including certain leasehold interests, must register and declare details of its 'registrable beneficial owners' (or managing officers) to UK Companies House by 31 January 2023, or sooner if the entity is dealing with UK real estate beforehand.

Companies House will maintain a public register of overseas entities and the information disclosed by them, which must have been verified by an authorised service provider.

More details of the requirements and implications of failure to comply are available here
