Beneficial OwnerNEW 

The Beneficial Owner service contains information about the benificial owners or pricipals of a company. Previously one was forced to log in to Bolagsverket in order to find the Beneficial Owners of a company but now we've made it available through an API service so that it can be easily integrated into current systems and processes.

The service can be used mainly in two ways. Either you enter an organisational number and get a list of the Beneficial Owners 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 Benificial 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.

Use this service when you want to find all Beneficial Owners of a company. Based on the organisation number, a listing of the Beneficial Owners of the company will be created.

Information about Beneficial Owner

  • Organisational number
  • Company name
  • Personal number: Personal Identification number of the Beneficial Owner
  • Citizenship: Designates the citizenship of the person
  • Residence: Designates the country the person resides in.
  • Complete name: First name, Given name and surname
  • Extension of control: E.g. more than 50% but not more than 75%
  • Date of registration
  • Type of control: E.g the person has control through stocks, shares, membership, contracts or provisions in e.g. articles of association or charters.
  • Other companies: Designates which other companies or organisations the person has control over.

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
