Frances Beneficial Ownership Register in Full Force

By in

France has enacted the EU’s 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive, which means all companies in France or with subsidiaries in EU Member States have to set up central registers of beneficial ownership of companies incorporated under their management. The Art 5 of Decree 2018-284 came into force in October earlier this year and amended the need for French companies and entities to identify their Beneficial Owners.
