FIU Semester Reports
Launching of Beneficial Ownership Database
Further to Circular N°5 issued on June 2nd , 2021, the Financial Intelligence Unit (“FIU”) would like to apologise for the inadvertent delay in the launching of the registration platform which was scheduled to go live on June 7th, 2021. This was due to network problems which has caused certain disruption in service.
However, the FIU is pleased to inform that the database is now live and the link for registration is accessible on Beneficial Ownership Database, together with BO Database Registration Guidelines to facilitate the process.
Currently, there are two databases running simultaneously on the website for registration with the FIU and they are:
- The goAML_Live is for the registration of reporting entities and their compliance officers for the purpose of suspicious transaction and other mandatory reporting (e.g. CTTR & WTTR); and
- The BO_Live is for the registration of the resident agents for the purpose of BO population.
As such, regardless you have already registered on the goAML_Live platform, all residents agents are required to register on the BO_Live platform for the purpose of populating the BO database.
Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the Information and International Co-operation Division on Tel: (+248) 4383470 or email to [email protected] for assistance.
