The fight against money laundering, tax evasion, and other financial crimes is on a rise across the world. Globally, organizations and companies are focusing on achieving compliance with AML/CFT norms. One of the requirements for this is identifying the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) of a company.

In regards to this, the UAE released Cabinet Decision No. 58 of 2020 to regulate the UBO requirements and procedures. The Resolution came into effect on August 28, 2020. It replaced the previous Cabinet Resolution No. 34 of 2020.

Accordingly, the applicable entities must disclose their Ultimate Beneficial Owner/s by the stipulated date. The initial deadline for filing UBO details was October 27, 2020, which was extended further. Compliance with this regulation proves the entity as transparent and honest with the authorities.

Besides the Register of UBO, entities must also maintain a register of Partners or Shareholders. They are also expected to maintain a Register of Nominee Directors and/or Managers. They must also notify the relevant authority of any change in any of the above registers within 15 days of such change.
With such compliance, it becomes easier to trace financial crimes when they occur. Authorities get a guarantee that entities are complying with global AML and CFT requirements. This is how the UAE economy is making efforts to reduce money laundering and terrorism financing activities.
