Revisions to Recommendation 24 and its Interpretive Note – Public Consultation

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is considering proposals for amendments to Recommendation 24 and its Interpretive Note on the transparency and beneficial ownership of legal persons. Following a White Paper consultation in June-August 2021 on a number of key policy areas, the FATF has analysed the views received from various stakeholders in considering the potential amendments. These amendments seek to reinforce the Recommendation to ensure greater transparency about the beneficial ownership of legal persons, and take action to mitigate the risks. The draft text of proposals for amendments is available here . Proposed amendments are in redline.

The FATF is consulting all affected stakeholders before finalising these amendments. We primarily seek views from companies and other legal persons, financial institutions, designated non-financial businesses and professions (DNFBPs), and non-profit organisations, but also welcome contributions from other interested stakeholders. We would welcome views on specific proposals of the amendments to the text, as well as on the broader themes that they address, in particular on the areas of focus below:

  • Multipronged approach to collection of Beneficial Ownership information

The requirement in paragraph 7 includes a compulsory company approach, a requirement for a public authority or body to hold beneficial ownership information (a beneficial ownership registry or another body) or an alternative mechanism, and the supplementary measures. Countries should decide, on the basis of risk, context and materiality, what form of registry or alternative mechanisms they will use to enable efficient access to information by competent authorities, and should document their decision. Do you agree with the approach set out in paragraph 7 of the Interpretive Note?
