Technical details

Find out all you need to know about a company's ownership and alternative beneficial owners

If a company does not have a registered beneficial owner, with more than 25% ownership, you can check alternative beneficial owners to see who should be considered a beneficiary. This API and web app service will show you minority owners in a company, as well as owners who own more than 25%, but are not registered as beneficial owners with authorities.

An alternative beneficial owner is someone who ultimately owns or controls a company, association or other type of legal entity, however not to the extent required for being declared as a beneficial owner, or someone who controls the company through board membership.

The alternative beneficial owner(s) retrieved with this service are people who own more than 5%, and people who are board members of the company either with the role of Chairman of the bord or General manager/CEO. As for people fulfilling criteria through ownership, the top 2 share holders are included in the response. Total share holdings are compiled from direct and indirect holdings. If a person owns more than 25%, the person is likely to appear in the response even though the person should be labeled as a beneficial owner.
