CORPORATE BODIES, INCLUDING TRUSTS ETC.

We will not be able to proceed with a transaction from a corporate body until we are fully satisfied that we have identified the ultimate beneficial owner. Importantly, the Regulations place a legal duty on all corporate bodies, including trusts etc, to provide us (the relevant person) with this information:

 

  • (a) Information identifying—
    • (i) its name, registered number, registered office and principal place of business;
    • (ii) its board of directors, or if there is no board, the members of the equivalent management body;
    • (iii) the senior persons responsible for its operations;
    • (iv) the law to which it is subject;
    • (v) its legal owners;
    • (vi) its beneficial owners; and
  • (b) its articles of association or other governing documents.

You are strongly advised to prepare in advance the necessary paperwork.

This is especially important with the more complex corporate structures as it will take considerably longer to conduct our due diligence. Each layer of the structure needs to be carefully examined until we have identified who the ultimate beneficial owners are.
 

If we are not fully satisfied, we will not be able to proceed with the transaction.

Should you have any queries or require further information please do not hesitate to contact any of our offices.
