2017 Ezine Newsletter

Email Newsletter
The CRO newsletter facility allows subscribers to receive regular news updates from the office by email. These emails are delivered in text format:

1. CRO E-Zine
This is an electronic bulletin published once a month. It informs all subscribers of the current developments within the Office and also notifies subscribers of future events.

2. Interim Messages
The email newsletter service is effectively split in two (though only one subscriber list is used). Every subscriber receives delivery of the CRO E-Zine once every month. In the interim subscribers may receive further updates if necessary from the Office (urgent or time sensitive messages).

LAUNCH OF CENTRAL REGISTER OF BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP 

The Department of Finance has advised that a Statutory Instrument is expected to be made in the coming months assigning separate legal responsibility to the Registrar of Companies for the establishment and maintenance of the central register of beneficial ownership of companies and industrial and provident societies (I&Ps).

Legal and technical work to launch this register as required by the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive is at an advanced stage. The Department of Finance has indicated that it is currently on track to have the beneficial ownership elements of the 4th Directive transposed by Q1 2018.

It is still envisaged that there will be an extended time-frame for companies and I&Ps to make their beneficial ownership filings which will commence after the anticipated launch of the register. Queries in relation to beneficial ownership can be sent to: aml@finance.gov.ie

Statutory Instrument No 560 of 15 November 2016, which required all corporate and legal entities to hold adequate, accurate and current information on their beneficial owner(s) in their own register, can be found at: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2016/si/560/made/en/print.

Further information on the central register of beneficial ownership can be found at: Beneficial Ownership page.  

 

LIMITED PARTNERSHIP FORMS
