Register Introduced for Overseas Owners of UK Property

As the UK government steps up its efforts to combat financial crime, particularly the use of UK property by foreign criminals to launder money, it is introducing a new Register of Overseas Entities that will impact any non-UK company or individual that owns UK real estate. While this regulatory initiative was originally drafted in 2018, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has accelerated the government’s initiative to increase transparency of overseas ownership of UK property. A bill has now been fast-tracked through parliament, which obliges overseas entities that own UK land and property to disclose certain information, including their Ultimate Beneficial Owners (UBO), on a public register at Companies House.
