In Slovenia the Register of beneficial ownership is being established.
Companies, associations and other legal entities registered in the Business Register of the Republic of Slovenia (with some exceptions) have to register in the Register of beneficial ownership according to the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Act until 19 January 2018 at the latest. The obligation to register also applies to some of the foreign legal entities, which are subject to paying taxes in Slovenia on the basis of their business activity in its territory. The newly established register is managed by AJPES. When registering, the business entity is to provide data on its ownership structure and afterword update it, when applicable. For each individual entity within the ownership structure information about all natural persons and entities holding at least 25% share in respective entity is to be provided.
The aim of the newly established register is to ensure the transparency of ownership structures of business entities and to prevent that business entities are misused for money laundering and financing of terrorism.
