By: COGENCY GLOBAL on May 30, 2023 10:22:20 AM

Thank you for your interest in our free CLE webinar Overseas Entities Owning UK Real Property: Navigating the UK’s New Beneficial Ownership Compliance Requirements. During the session, we delved into the intricacies of the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) laws and beneficial ownership disclosure procedures in the UK and EU and discussed their implications for registered companies.  

Our presenters, Pushkala and Pia, provided insight into the information that needs to be submitted and introduced attendees to the role of a UK-regulated agent. We also highlighted key dates for Economic Crime (Transparency & Enforcement) Act 2022 (ECTEA 2022) compliance, shared useful tips from HM Land Registry on property transaction registration and explored the groundbreaking changes made by the legal and banking industries to enhance compliance. 

If you missed it, or need to revisit any points, a recording of the webinar is available. Don't miss this chance to stay abreast of these vital regulations and ensure your organization remains compliant. We encourage you to share this information with your colleagues and networks.
