Central shareholders’ register

On 19 January 2017, a private member’s bill has been filed to the Lower House of Dutch Parliament with regard to the establishment of a central shareholders’ register (‘centraal aandeelhoudersregister’). 

The object of the establishment of a central shareholders’ register is to create more insight into the identity of shareholders of legal entities. In addition, it appears that a physical shareholders’ register is often untraceable or the information is not up to date. The legislator would like to accomplish a higher degree of reliability of this information.
