Register of Beneficial Ownership

Ellis & Ellis have recently been in correspondence with the Central Register of Beneficial Ownership of Companies and Industrial and Provident Societies.

We have been informed that ‘…Following a recent judgement [sic] by the European Court of Justice the search facility on the RBO register for beneficial ownership information is now suspended…’

Moreover, we are also informed that the ‘…RBO is currently working on providing access for Designated Persons only…’.

(Note: A designated person is defined on the RBO’s website (Section 15) as follows: Frequently Asked Questions About The RBO – RBO)

Ellis & Ellis will continue to keep a watching brief on this matter, and should there be any changes re the above we will circulate same,
