Opportunity for tech firms: Jersey’s Beneficial Owners Register
Opportunity for tech firms: technical impacts facing local businesses regarding Jersey’s Beneficial Owners register: 28th November 2016, 10-11am and 2-3pm @ Hub
The JFSC would like to meet local tech developers to update them on the changes being introduced to manage Jersey’s Beneficial Owners register. Attendees will gain an insight of technical opportunities for local businesses and the technical teams within trust and company service providers (TCSPs) to take a proactive role in this process.
Background: At the start of November 2016, the Government of Jersey published an enhanced policy on beneficial ownership and a register of directors. The policy ensures that Jersey continues to fulfil its obligation as a responsible international finance centre.

The policy will require the TCSP to update the central registry within 21 days of knowledge of a change of beneficial ownership of a corporate that they administer.
John Harris, Registrar of Companies and Director General of the JFSC said “the timelines for the implementation are very tight and, in order to meet the deadlines, we will be working with industry and related interest groups…to ensure the process of delivery is efficient and effective.”
The session will run for approximately and hour an outline of which is below:
