Beneficial Ownership Registers – search for beneficial ownership information

The Beneficial Ownership Registers Interconnection System (‘BORIS’) is a tool to connect the national central registers holding beneficial ownership information of corporate and other legal entities and trusts and other types of legal arrangements.

Find beneficial ownership information

Here you will be able to search for a company, legal entity, trust or legal arrangement and access information on its beneficial owner(s) supplied by the national registers. In accordance with Directive (EU) 2015/849 as amended by Directive (EU) 2018/843 this service will gradually connect the beneficial ownership registers of all EU countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Certain information may be restricted from public access in accordance with national law, while information subject to a fee will only become available on the Portal at a later stage.

The integration of the beneficial ownership search tool into the e-Justice Portal is currently still being worked on. The search tool, as well as the “General information and terms and conditions” page with links to the respective national registers, is expected to appear here shortly.
