Beneficial Owner

This service contains information about the beneficial owners or principals of a company.

The API has two endpoints. Either you enter a business ID and get a list of the BO's of the company. Alternatively, you enter a personal identification number and get back a list of the companies the person is registered as a Beneficial Owner for.

A Beneficial owner is the person or persons who ultimately own or control, for example, a company or association. A true beneficial owner can also be the person (s) who serve someone else to act on them.

What’s the Purpose of Knowing the Identity of the Beneficial Owner?

According to the EU money laundering directive, all EU-countries must keep records over the true Beneficial Owners of organisations. The main purpose is to provide a registry for banks and Financial investigation Units so they quickly can see who or whom are behind the organisation. Additionally, this will be used to fight money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

As an example, this means that when a company is about to become a customer with a bank, the bank needs to sort out who/whom are the real Beneficial Owners. If the bank suspects that the named Beneficial Owners are incorrect, the bank will request an investigation around who the real Beneficial Owners are, something the bank is legally entitled to do. If the investigation is inferior or if the bank finds a reason to distrust it, the company will be denied as a customer
