22.08.2017 NL law

By 26 June 2017, the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (2015/849/EU) needed to be implemented in domestic law of the EU Member States.

The Dutch legislator has not met this deadline. The Directive includes the introduction of a register containing information about the ultimate beneficial owner (UBO) of all companies and other legal entities. A legislative proposal to implement the Directive and introduce the UBO register is expected later this year, according to a spokesperson for the Dutch Ministry of Finance, responsible for the legislation.
