Short Reads - "Determine your UBO for the three Benelux countries"  In Luxembourg, companies and other legal entities have been required to register their UBO(s) since 31 August 2019.  In Belgium, the UBO register is also already operational. Although 30 September 2019 was the formal deadline for registration, Belgian authorities announced they would begin policing non-compliance as from 1 January 2020.
