On 22 June 2019, a new Central Register of Beneficial Ownership of Companies will be created. The purpose of the Statutory Instrument introduced was to give effect to the EU’s fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive and it requires the disclosure of beneficial ownership of Irish Companies and the creation of a new Central Register.
Companies that existed prior to the 22 June 2019 must deliver the required information to the Central Register within 5 months (i.e. before 22 November 2019). Companies created after the 22 June 2019 have 5 months from the date of incorporation to deliver the information to the Central Register.
