Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Register of Overseas Entities affect me?

This new regulation requires that any overseas entity which owns property in the UK register itself with Companies House.

What are the new regulations?

The Register of Overseas Entities came into force on 1 August 2022. Overseas entities who want to buy, sell or transfer property or land in the UK, must now register with Companies House and tell them who their registrable beneficial owners or managing officers are.

What is an s12 notice?

An s12 notice is a letter that needs to be sent by the overseas entity to its beneficial owners before registration can be completed. 1040 Tax can provide the legally-correct wording for the letter as apart of our service to you.

Can I register my own company myself?

No. A UK-regulated agent must complete verification checks on all its beneficial owners and managing officers before submitting any documentation. 1040 Tax are fully registered, authorised agents, duly authorised to complete the registration on your behalf.

How long does the registration process take and is it stressful?

The initial registration is a relatively quick process – there are documents that need to be identified, verified and submitted, but we deal with all of this on your behalf – meaning no stress for you!

What are the penalties for not registering?

Failure to register is a criminal offence, and the officers of the entity could face a fine and up to two years in jail (or five years in some extreme cases) if they do not comply. Similarly, failure of beneficial owners to supply information can also be a criminal offence under UK law.
