Beneficial Owner Registry

With the deadline rapidly approaching, only one-in-ten Portuguese companies have reported their beneficial owners. Late reporting incurs a charge of €35. Fines for non-compliance can range between €1,000 and €50,000. The Beneficial Owner Registry is to have three levels: a basic version open for consultation by the general public, another for the companies and their representatives, and a third for law enforcement authorities.

The initial implementation of the Beneficial Owners Registry has been postponed from April 30th until June 30th. This legislation requires the declaration of a company’s beneficial ownership data which will be shared between jurisdictions as part of the Common Reporting Standard. In the future, this information must be kept up-to-date on an annual basis.
