Compulsory filings to the Transparency Register

Under the revised German Anti-Money Laundering Act effective since 1 August 2021 all German and foreign legal entities under private law, registered partnerships, trusts and similar legal structures with a connection to Germany are obligated to provide information on their beneficial owners to the Transparency Register. The filing to the commercial register or another register will no longer be sufficient. The transitional periods for filings will expire within 2022.

Our experts Dr. Nils Harbeck and Dr. Christian Kahle, LL.M. will gladly support you with ascertaining the beneficial owner, managing/updating the filings and documenting all filings in an auditable manner.
