Register Introduced for Overseas Owners of UK Property

09 Aug 2022

As the UK government steps up its efforts to combat financial crime, particularly the use of UK property by foreign criminals to launder money, it has introduced a new Register of Overseas Entities that will impact any non-UK company that owns UK real estate.  After legislation was fast-tracked through parliament, overseas entities that own UK land and property are now obliged to disclose certain information, including certain Ultimate Beneficial Owners, on a public register at Companies House.
