Legal entities will be excluded from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, and individual entrepreneurs from the Unified State Register of Individual Entrepreneurs due to being classified as a high-risk group for suspicious transactions.
The changes were made in connection with the emergence in the Federal Law “On Combating the Legalization (Laundering) of Proceeds from Crime and the Financing of Terrorism” of new grounds for excluding legal entities and individual entrepreneurs from the relevant registers.
The law also expanded the list of grounds for refusal of state registration. In particular, the possibility of including in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities information about the founders (participants) and head of a legal entity excluded from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities due to the presence of inaccurate information about him in the register is limited for three years.
In addition, according to the changes made, information will also be entered into the Unified State Register of Individual Entrepreneurs that the individual entrepreneur is the head of a peasant (farm) enterprise.
Among other things, the law excludes a copy of the passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation from the list of documents provided for the state registration of an individual as an individual entrepreneur to the registration authority.
