The Companies Register, attached to the Ministry of the Presidency, Economy and Business, has made available to the parties under obligation a new online platform to consult the information on the beneficial owners of the companies.

This platform is available to all those persons designated by a party under obligation as representatives before the UIFAND. Access is personal, by means of their digital certificate and through the following link: https://aplicacions.govern.ad/consulteseconomia/

The information contained in the platform corresponds to the last document that the companies have provided in compliance with the "Decree of 05-09-2018 approving the Regulation governing the recording and access to information relating to beneficial owners". It should be noted that this information is necessary to comply with the provisions of article 10.1 of "Law 14/2017, of June 22, on the prevention and fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism" by which the parties under obligation must request from the competent Register a proof or extract of the information of the beneficial owner.

Any incident or technical problem with access to the platform must be reported directly to the Companies Register via the email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Finally, it is worth recalling the public nature of the register of beneficial owners, on the grounds of the fundamental, internationally accepted principles of transparency and publicity, and by virtue of what is established in article 19.4 of Law 14/2017. In this sense, any person, other than the authorities or the parties under obligation, can access the information on the beneficial owner following the procedure set in articles 10 and 11 of the aforementioned Regulation contained in the Decree of 09-5-2018, upon the payment of the corresponding fee.

A new technical communiqué, regarding whistleblowing and the mechanisms to encourage the reporting of potential or actual breaches of Law 14/2017 and its developing provisions is now available in the "Applicable Technical Communiqués" section. The form referred to in the technical communiqué is available in the "Forms" section.
