Montserrat committed in November 2015 to include beneficial ownership information in its existing public companies register. A Bill requiring legal entities to hold beneficial ownership information and to submit it for inclusion in the existing public central register will be introduced to Montserrat's Legislative Assembly later this month. The target date for the addition of beneficial ownership information to the existing register is 1 April 2018.
