What is the beneficial owner’s register in Portugal?

Any national or international entity carrying on business in Portugal needs to be registered in the register of the beneficial owner.

What is the beneficial owner?

It is a person who, through the social ownership or other means, directs a company, an association, a foundation… And who has to identify with the central registry of the beneficial owner (RCBE).

This control of the entity was set up in accordance with the 4th standard against money laundering to enhance the transparency, confidence and security of economic transactions. The beneficial owner can be registered by the managers, administrators and or founders of entities, lawyers, notaries or “solicitador” with powers of representation.
