The Scottish Partnerships (Register of People with Significant Control) Regulations 2017

Since April 2016, companies and Limited Liability Partnerships have been required to give information about people who have control over them.  Changes introduced on 26 June 2017 mean that requirements have now been placed on Scottish Limited Partnerships and some traditional Scottish partnerships where the members are companies (traditional partnerships where the members are individuals will not be caught by the new rules).  
Where the rules apply, the limited partnership or partnership must identify “people with significant control” and notify Companies House of the relevant information by 14 August 2017.  Companies House must be notified of any changes and the partnership/limited partnership will also need to confirm the information every year.  
The changes are aimed at increasing transparency and relate to the UK’s obligations under anti-money laundering rules.  Although the changes are not aimed at farming partnerships, the new rules will apply to them where the criteria under the regulations are met.
