Keeping name and transfer information up to date is important because it clarifies who owns the rights. When there is a change in the owner’s name or ownership relationship, it is the responsibility of the rights holder to update the new information in the register, as the authorities maintaining the registers do not make such updates on their own initiative. In case of acquisitions or mergers, it is particularly important that changes are handled quickly. This allows the the necessary information and documents on time. We are always in touch with the customer before taking any action, considering that making changes to the registry may require obtaining or preparing documents. Additionally, posting a change typically incurs regulatory fees. Foreign registrations often require translations of documents and consultation with local experts.
