PRACTICAL GUIDE: ULTIMATE BENEFICIAL OWNERS REQUIREMENTS

  • The Belgian law of 18 September 2017 requires (international) not for profit associations (hereafter “Associations”) to register their Ultimate Beneficial Owners (“UBO”) in the so-called UBO Register.

    The deadline foreseen by Belgian authorities is 30 September 2019. This being said, Belgian authorities have specified that they would apply a tolerance policy up until 31 December 2019, period during which no sanction will be imposed.

    I. Who qualifies as a UBO of Associations?

    The following persons are considered as ultimate beneficial owners of Associations:

    1. Directors;
    2. Persons entitled to represent the Association;
    3. Persons entrusted with daily management;
    4. Natural persons – or when those persons have yet to be determined, the category of natural persons – in whose main interest the Association is set up or operates;
    5. Any other natural person exercising ultimate control over the Association by other means.

    II. What data must be collected?

    Associations must collect and retain relevant, accurate and up-to-date information on their ultimate beneficial owners & register it with the UBO Register.

    For each UBO, Associations need to collect and register the following data:

    1. Last name;
    2. First name;
    3. Day of birth;
    4. Month of birth;
    5. Year of birth;
    6. Nationality (or nationalities);
    7. Country of residence;
    8. Complete address of residence;
    9. Date on which he/she became an UBO of the Association;
    10. Identification number in the National Register of Natural Persons or in the Crossroads Bank for Social Security or if unavailable, any similar identifier given by the country in which the UBO lives or of which the UBO is a national;
    11. Category (or categories) of ultimate beneficial owners to which the UBO belongs;
    12. Whether the UBO fulfils the conditions for qualification as ultimate beneficial owner individually or together with other persons.

    Associations must also obtain supporting documents proving that the information is accurate, adequate and up-to-date. Moreover, Associations must review annually the accuracy of the information on their UBO.

    The information will be recorded and retained in the UBO Register for 10 years from the date of the Association’s loss of legal personality or permanent cessation of activities.

    Each UBO has the right:

    - to be informed of the data recorded under his/her name;
    - to have these data amended or deleted if they are incorrect.

    III. What are the sanctions?

    Failure to comply with the UBO requirements may result in fines that would be imposed to the directors of the Association:

    - administrative fines ranging from EUR 250 to EUR 50,000;
    - as the case may be and additionally, criminal fines ranging from EUR 400 to EUR 40,000.

    IV. Who will have access to the UBO register?

    The following persons/entities will have access to the information contained in the UBO Register concerning Associations:

    A. Competent authorities (e.g. tax authorities);
    B. “Obliged entities” (meaning persons required to apply the rules contained in the law of 18 September 2017, e.g. notaries, attorneys, financial institutions, etc.) within the framework of fulfilling their due diligence obligations towards their clients;
    C. Any person or organization demonstrating a legitimate interest with respect to the fight against money laundering, terrorist financing or associated underlying criminal activities;
    D. Any person filing a request to the Treasury Administration (“FPS Finance”) for a legal entity (association, foundation, trust, fiducie or other similar legal arrangement) controlling a company, (international) not for profit association or foundation.

    The persons referred to under A. and B. have an access without limitation. Nevertheless, the persons referred to under C. and D. will not have access to the following data of the UBO of the Association: (i) first name, (ii) day of birth, (iii) complete address of residence, and (iv) identification number in the National Register (or similar identifier).

    V. Other information

    The UBO Register is managed by the Belgian General Administration of Treasury (“FPS Finance”) and the UBO authorities can be reached at ubobelgium@minfin.fed.be.

    If needed, more information on the UBO Register is available here: https://finances.belgium.be/fr/E-services/ubo-register.
