Update – New Disclosure Requirements for all British Columbia Companies

Categories: Blog, Business Law

In our March edition of our Legal Alert, I wrote about the new disclosure requirements for BC companies to provide information regarding their beneficial ownership and control. My original article can be found here. The date by which BC Companies must comply with these new disclosure requirements has now been extended from May 1, 2020 to October 1, 2020.

We will be reaching out to all BC companies that have Pushor Mitchell as their Registered and Records office closer to the October 1 date.

If you have a BC company and wish to discuss your new Transparency Register requirements, please feel free to contact us.

Paul Tonita is a solicitor practicing in the areas of business law, real estate, estate planning and estate administration.  His business experience includes assisting clients right from the beginning by discussing the different business structures, incorporating, buying and selling businesses, assisting with lending or financing needs, drafting and advising on contracts, and providing general advice to business owners.

His real estate practice involves assisting both residential and commercial clients with purchases, sales, financing and leasing.

Paul also helps clients plan for their future with estate and incapacity planning. He guides executors through the legal challenges that are unknown to many when they agree to take on the executor’s role. This may involve determining whether a grant of probate is required and applying for one if necessary, calling in assets, paying out debts, transferring real estate to surviving joint tenants and determining whether additional steps may be required in order to wind up an estate and transfer the balance of assets to the deceased’s beneficiaries.
