Register of Overseas Entities Service

Elemental delivers a fully managed Register of Overseas Entities service that supports international businesses to declare their ownership of UK real estate on the register, maintained by Companies House.

Registration and Verification

To register on the ROE, an overseas entity needs to ensure that the information submitted is verified by a UK-supervised ‘relevant person’. Elemental is such a ‘relevant person’ and can manage this process in a smooth and efficient way.

Why can’t my law firm do this?

The Law Society have issued guidance stating that law firms should exercise extreme caution before carrying out verification of overseas entities.

As a regulated firm, with considerable experience assisting overseas entities with their existing reporting obligations in the UK, Elemental is here to support international clients – and law firms on behalf of their clients – to meet their registration requirements on the ROE.

We are also working with law firms to ensure that their clients are properly supported through this process.

‘…only a small number of specialist firms and probably large international firms and external accountants will have the appropriate expertise to supply the verification requested.’ ‘[the law firm] should exercise extreme caution if you are considering such verification.’
