UBO Register: The deadline for submitting evidential documents extended until 31 August 2021

The extension of the information to be provided in the context of the UBO register has been in force since 11 October 2020, but the administration of the  Finance FPS accepted that this formality should be completed by 30 April next year. We discussed this in our newsletter of 30 October 2020.

The Finance FPS now offers an adapted FAQ to help information providers to comply with the new rules on mandatory supporting documents.

The deadline for uploading these documents and the annual confirmation of the information in the UBO register has been extended till 31 August 2021. This extension will allow the correct application of the adapted FAQs and avoid the sanctions applicable as from 1 September 2021.

Cairn Legal is also at your disposal to assist you in the identification of your beneficial owners and the information to be communicated.
