This exchange of notes and technical protocol for sharing beneficial ownership information came into force on 13 April 2016.

The arrangement requires maintaining a central register, or equivalent system, containing accurate and current information on beneficial ownership for corporate and legal entities incorporated in their jurisdictions.

It also requires each jurisdiction to ensure effective and unrestricted access to this information to the other jurisdiction’s law enforcement and tax authorities.
