FATF has published a new guide on Best Practices on Beneficial Ownership for Legal Persons, which refers to what Jersey does as examples of best practice. The report identifies common challenges that countries face in ensuring that beneficial owners of companies are identified, and suggests key features of an effective beneficial ownership transparency regime.
Four examples from Jersey’s beneficial ownership regime were used as best practice examples in the publication and the resulting positive outcomes in regard to accuracy were also noted.
It’s another win for the Island’s international reputation as a top location to do business. With the Island’s continuing work toward stronger regulation, accurate information and more connection between the UK and EU registers, Jersey will continue to be a showcase of global best practice proving the Island’s dedication to transparency and responsibility.
