On 30 December 2014 the Ministry of Financial Services published its Consultation Report on the Maintenance of Legal and Beneficial Ownership Information.  The next step in this process is today's publication of submissions received during the consultation.

In the consultation report, submissions were recorded into one of four categories: Individuals, Foreign Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs), Local NGOs, or Local Companies and Foreign Companies. Submissions from the latter three categories will be published in their entirety. In the case of individuals, a list of names will be published along with, if the individual has given his or her consent, the full content of the submission. This is in accordance with our consultation process, and is in line with the approach adopted by the UK.  

Responses to the consultation were counted and categorised according to the letterhead under which they were submitted.  For example, a response submitted under one letterhead, but signed by representatives of different organisations, was counted as one response.

Since the report's publication, minor inaccuracies were identified that resulted in the reclassification of two responses. Because they are minor, these reclassifications do not alter the response analysis, Government's response, or Government's conclusions and next steps.

  • One response was reclassified from a 'Company' to an 'Individual'.
  • One response was reclassified from a 'Local Company' to a 'Foreign Company'.

The charts titled 'Responses Received' and 'Breakdown of Responses by Entity Type' have been amended in the report to reflect the above reclassifications.
