Deadline for UAE Companies to file UBO | Ultimate Beneficial Ownership Declaration 2021

First came the Value-Added-Tax (VAT), then Economic Substance Regulations (ESR), and now Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) rules. The UAE now requires companies to strictly follow well-defined transparency procedures.

Who can be termed as Real Beneficiaries or Beneficial Owner?

"The ultimate beneficial owner (UBO) is the person who, directly or indirectly, controls and owns a company. Individuals with ownership of at least 25% shares or who exercises ultimate control over a 'legal person' like; someone with voting rights of a company or someone with the power to appoint and dismiss a majority of a company's directors shall be considered as a UBO."

What all documents need to be submitted or filed?

The companies incorporated after the resolution came into effect should report to the Registrar within sixty (60) days of formation. In the Real Beneficiary Register, they must provide:

  • Full name, nationality, date, and place of birth;
  • Place of address, or residence to which notifications are sent;
  • ID number or Passport, country, and date of issue and expiry;
  • Date and basis on which he became a real beneficiary; and
  • The date on which a person ceases to be a real beneficiary.

The Partners or Shareholders Register (PSR) requires:

  • Number and class of shares owned by each of the partners or shareholders;
  • The date on which they become a partner or shareholder

The 'legal person' should submit any amendment or change to the details or information to the registrar within fifteen (15) days from the date of the amendment and change. And if the company is under liquidation, the liquidator shall hand over the Real Beneficiary Register and Partners or Shareholders Register to the Registrar within thirty (30) days from the date of his appointment.
