The main novelties derived from the V Directive are the following: (i) inclusion of new obligated subjects; (ii) creation of a single registry system that will include the information of the beneficial owners already existing in the Mercantile Registry and in the notarial databases; and (iii) obligatory registration of the trusts and entities of similar nature that operate in our country and of their beneficial owners.
