The Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism Regulations require that subject person identify and verify and carry out customer due diligence on the beneficial owner/s of a customer.

Who qualifies as a beneficial owner under the said Regulations, and what measures are we required to take in order we identify the beneficial owner?
