Vieira de Almeida and the Portuguese Foundations Center realize on the 4th of April, between 17h and 19h, a workshop dedicated to “The Foundations and the new anti-money laundering obligations”.

This workshop will explain and discuss the new obligations that the recent legal regime of anti-money laundering has imposed on Foundations, in order to help the Foundations to adequately comply with the new and demanding legal framework.

The Law against money laundering and terrorism financing establishes a set of measures to combat and prevent money laundering, also applicable to Foundations, which include (among others) a set of collection obligations, maintenance and preservation of information on the identity of the persons or entities from whom they receive donations of more than € 100 (especially relevant in context of the appeals of these companies for support that enable them to provide an effective emergency response in disaster situations like the current Cyclone Idai in Mozambique).

On the other side, under the legal regime of the The Beneficial Owner Central Registry (“RJRCBE”) the foundations subject to the RJRCBE, constituted before October 1, 2018, shall submit the initial declaration relative to the beneficial owner.
