What is the Ultimate Beneficial Owner’s Report?
CreditorWatch recognises the responsibility that comes with compliance to the Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements and the Anti-Money Laundering / Counter Terrorism Financing Act. With our Ultimate Beneficial Owner’s Report, we take the hassle out of identifying beneficial owners and do the hard work for you – with the simple click of a button.
A beneficial owner is an individual or non-individual who controls or owns at least 25% or more of a company’s shares. It isn’t always easy to identify this due to the common complex structures of commercial entities. There can be multiple shareholders within a company and they can be made up of individuals and/or other holding companies.
Manually finding this information requires a lot of research and calculations.
