The register of beneficial ownership for companies

In 2018, the S.L. 386.19 Companies Act (Register of Beneficial Owners) Regulations was enacted which obligated entities formed or registered in Malta to disclose its ultimate beneficial owners to the Registrar of Companies.

The Regulations are applicable to entities formed in Malta under the Companies Act (Cap 386), continued in Malta in terms of the Continuation of Companies Regulations (S.L. 386.05) and companies formed and registered in Malta under the Merchant Shipping (Shipping Organisations – Private Companies) Regulations (S.L. 234.42). This session aims to provide guidance to these entities and those interested as to what constitutes an ultimate beneficial owner and therefore those who need to be reported, the obligations of the entities captured by the Regulations and the forms that need to be submitted to the Registrar.
