The deadline for filing Benficial Ownership details in the Central Beneficial Ownership Register is the 22nd of November, 2019. KomSec would advise clients not to leave registration until the last minute as a rush of registrations could cause a system overload in the Companies Registration Office (which is handling filings on behalf of the Registrar of Beneficial Owernship). It should also be remembered that the 2019 legislation increased the sanctions substantially from those provided for in the 2016 legislation. A company who breaches the Regulations may now be liable to a class A fine (currently up to €5,000) or, on indictment, a fine not exceeding €500,000. In addition to these fines, custodial sentences of up to 12 months can be imposed. You have been warned!

Further details can be obtained by contacting KomSec or accessing the Central Register website at https://rbo.gov.ie/
