​A Bill requiring legal entities to hold beneficial ownership information and to submit it for inclusion in Montserrat's existing public central register will have its first reading in Montserrat's Legislative Assembly on 19 December. It will have its second and third reading at the next sitting of the Legislative Assembly, which is scheduled to sit on 23 January 2018. The Bill is expected to come into law after that date.
