Key takeaways

  • Scottish limited partnerships—commonly used vehicles for European private funds—must now identify whether there is anyone with “significant influence or control” over them.
  • Key information about such a person must be filed on a public register.
  • Anyone who knows they have control of a Scottish partnership is under an obligation to notify the partnership of that fact.
  • Scottish partnerships will need to quickly educate themselves about the scope of the rules and develop a compliance plan.
