More Red Tape/Big Brother – Central Register of Beneficial Ownership of Companies (RB)

In March of this year the Minister for Finance signed into law, Statutory Instrument No.110 OF 2019 to establish a Central Register of Beneficial Ownership of Companies.

The Register of Companies (i.e the CRO) has been appointed as the Registrar of Beneficial Ownership with effect from 29th July 2019.

What does this mean for you?
What it means for our clients, is that every director must enter their details on the register before 22nd November 2019 without being in breach of their duty.

How can Guardian help?
We have access to all the information that is required to update the register, and can carry this out for you for a token fee of €100+ vat. Please contact Liliana on if you wish us to carry out this service for you.

If you wish to do this yourself, please log on to, but having done it myself, I think I’d rather watch paint dry…
