Criminals and organised crime groups may hide behind companies registered in different countries and connected through complex “Chinese boxes” schemes, often used as shells to carry out frauds, evade taxes or launder illicit funds. Identifying the beneficial owners that are concealing behind these corporate entities is not only a crucial activity in the fight against financial crime, but also one of the most challenging tasks that law enforcement agencies (LEAs) have to face.
In this field the research of Transcrime has primarily focused on identifying what data and information is available, among databases and business registers, on the ownership structure and the beneficial owners of European companies. The analysis has been carried out within the EU project BOWNET (www.bownet.eu) and the results are available in the final report of the project.
Now Transcrime is developing, within project EBOCS (www.ebocs.eu) and in cooperation with EBR (www.ebr.org), major European company registers, financial intelligence units (FIUs), major financial institutions and software houses, a search engine able to provide a quick and unified access to all the data on the ownership structure of companies (shareholders, beneficial owners, administrators, managers) registered in various EU business registers.
The software will constitute a valid instrument at the disposal of FIUs, LEAs, financial institutions and other intermediaries subject to customer due diligence obligations. Moreover, making it more rapid and effective the identification of who ultimately controls companies, it will represent a crucial step in order to improve the transparency of European financial markets.
