The Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022 introduced a new register of overseas entities (“ROE”) at Companies House.  The ROE is a publicly searchable register that records the beneficial ownership of non-UK entities holding UK land.  Registration at Companies House is not straightforward and involves the registrable information being independently verified by a “relevant person”.  A relevant person includes financial institutions, accountants, tax advisers, lawyers and trust/company service providers.  Following detailed guidance from the Law Society, Gibson Dunn, in common with the majority of English-regulated law firms, does not conduct ROE verification as a service for clients.  There are, however, a number of UK company service providers that do offer this service.
