Overseas entities that own UK property must use the Register of Overseas Entities to provide Companies House with information about their beneficial owners and relevant trusts. The deadline for such disclosure was 31 January 2023. See HMRC’s policy paper.
HMRC will be able access this information towards the end of February 2023. It is therefore urging taxpayers to declare any unpaid tax relating to UK properties held in these structures before it commences investigations.
