In response to the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union (Grand Chamber) of November 22, 2022, in joined cases C 37/20 and C 601/20, invalidating the provision of Directives 2018/843 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purpose of money laundering or terrorist financing and public access to the Register of Beneficiaries (the “RBE“), via the LBR’s website, has been suspended as of 22 November 2022 by the Luxembourg Business Registers (the “LBR”).

As a consequence, the professionals within the meaning of Article 2 (Scope) (the “Professionals”) of the amended act of 12 November 2004 on the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (the “2004 Law”) have no longer access to the RBE at the moment.

In order to remedy this situation and to reopen access to these professionals on the LBR’s website, the LBR set up a new procedure in order to access to the RBE for the Professionals.

To access the RBE, the professionals will have to (i) meet the following prerequisites and (ii) complete the below documents:

I. Prerequisites

  • Be a professional within the meaning of Article 2 (Scope) of the 2004 Law;

  • Execute the agreement (Convention relative à l’accès a la consultation au registre des bénéficiaires effectifs) (the “Agreement“). The Agreement will lead to the creation of an account with LBR, allowing the professional to be identified as such by LBR, when connecting to the website and to designate internal users, via an application dedicated to user management
  • Execute the Agreement’s annex (Annexe technique à la convention relative à l’accès à la consultation au Registre des bénéficiaires effectifs) (the “Annex“) with the LBR.
