(Ireland) Central Beneficial Ownership Register expected to go live June 2017

The next phase in the creation of a central beneficial ownership register in Ireland (the "Central Register") is due to commence with the expected publication by the Department of Finance of a statutory instrument which will oblige Irish incorporated companies and other legal entities ("Corporates") to commence filing of beneficial ownership information with the Central Register.  It is expected that Corporates will have a three month window, starting from 26 June 2017, in which to file returns to the Central Register without being in breach of the statutory duty to file.
