Transparency & Trust: Enhancing the transparency of UK Company Ownership and Increasing Trust in UK Business

The Department for Business Innovation & Skills has published a discussion paper which sets out a number of proposals aimed at 'enhancing the transparency of UK company ownership and increasing trust in UK business'.The proposals include the implementation of a central registry of the beneficial owners of all UK companies, and strengthening the systems in place to tackle company directors who do not follow the rules. We have responded to express our broad agreement with these proposals.
