Transparency register

The transparency register anchored in the Money Laundering Act (GwG) is a register in which legal entities under private law and registered partnerships in particular have had to enter their "beneficial owners" since October 2017, 1st. Pursuant to Section 3 (2) sentence 1 GwG, beneficial owners include natural persons who hold more than 25% of the capital shares or control voting rights or exercise control in a comparable manner. The purpose of reporting beneficial owners is to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. Anyone who fails to report his or her beneficial owners to the transparency register is acting irregularly and must expect a fine.
