2017 Changes to UK PSC Requirements

Recent changes to Anti-Money Laundering legislation in the United Kingdom have affected the Persons with Significant Control (PSC) regime for all limited companies, some public companies, and now Scottish partnerships. The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulations 2017 replaces the previous legislation, The Money Laundering Regulations 2007.

While the legislation is fairly far reaching, the most important change for most UK businesses to keep in mind is that, going forward, ALL changes to a company’s PSC register must be reported to Companies House within 28 days of the change being made. Previously changes to PSC registers only had to be reported at the time of filing the annual Confirmation Statement.
