Ireland’s central register of beneficial ownership of companies was officially launched on July 29th, which also includes industrial and provident societies in the act; following an adjournment to allow certain clarifications on beneficial owners’ personal public services (PPS) numbers.
Irish companies and industrial and provident societies that were already in business before June 22nd 2019 have to report their beneficial ownership information to the registrar before the 22nd of November 2019. And those incorporated after must report within 5 months of their official date of formation.
A different set of regulations will be issued shortly for other types of corporate entities that do not fall under the act. Restricted access to data will be made available to the general public, and please note that there are no fees to file the information.
