On November 25, 2014, the recently adopted Law “On Introduction of Changes to Certain Legal Acts of Ukraine Related to Determination of Ultimate Beneficiaries of Legal Entities and Public Figures” (the “Beneficiaries Law”) will come into force.
These amendments result in two substantial novelties:
1) Ukrainian companies (including newly established and already existing) will have to disclose their beneficiaries; and 2) information about rights to immovable property will become public.
