Beneficial Ownership Information - Jersey Companies, mainly local residents (Non TCSPs)


The Companies Registry at the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) is making changes to the way the Companies Registry collects information concerning beneficial ownership and control (BO). From 1 January 2017 onwards, we will require companies and partnerships registered at the JFSC to complete a C17S form detailing current beneficial ownership and control by 30 June 2017. Effectively, you have six months to comply with this new requirement. On submission of a C17S for and thereafter, all companies and partnerships that are not administered by a TCSP must seek the prior approval of the Companies Registry to any change to beneficial ownership and control.

The C17S form is available online by logging into our Easy Company Registry system on the Registry's website. The Registry is also providing a drop in centre if you require assistance in completing your online submission. Please contact the registry at registry@jerseyfsc.org to arrange a suitable time or alternatively please call the registry on 01534 822030.

The Information you will need to complete the C17S form.

When completing information for an individual, you will need to provide the following: Full Name (English version if applicable, any former names and any other names used i.e. alias), Residential Address, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, Country of Birth, Nationality, Occupation and Gender.

When completing information for an Entity, you will need to provide the following: Full Name, Address, Registration number, Country of Registration.

Important: Even if there is no change to BO information since incorporation, you must still complete a C17S (or equivalent form depending on the entity applying) before 30 June 2017. This will allow the Companies Registry at the JFSC to update information relating to BOs of each company and partnership on the register. You can do this at any time from 1 January 2017 as long as this is filed by 30 June 2017.

Details in respect of how this information will be held and shared can be found by clicking here.
