Luxembourg Business Registers new filing formalities

On 1 October 2021, the Luxembourg Business Registers (LBR) issued a public notice advising on forthcoming changes starting at the end of the first quarter of 2022, in regards to formalities to be carried out at the Trade and Companies Register (RCS), as listed below.

  1. New format for RCS requisition forms

The requisition forms in the current PDF format will be replaced by forms to be completed directly online in HTML format. It will support to a more user-friendly interface for the RCS registration process.

  1. Registration of the Luxembourg national identification number for natural persons registered with the RCS

With the implementation of the new HTML forms, persons and entities registered with the RCS will have to communicate the Luxembourg national identification number for any natural person registered with the RCS, within their file, pursuant to Article 12bis of the amended law of 19 December 2002 on the register of commerce and companies and the accounting and annual accounts of undertakings. If an individual does not have a national identification number, one can be created by submitting information to the RCS, providing all necessary information to verify the individual’s identity.

  1. Checking the consistency of Luxembourg addresses

With the introduction of the new forms, a check on the Luxembourg addresses communicated to the RCS will be carried out in relation to the information contained in the National Register of Localities and Streets, pursuant to Article 12ter of the aforementioned amended law of 19 December 2002.

The precise date from which these changes will apply will be communicated at a later date. A user’s guide explaining the new HTML forms will also be made available to the public on the LBR website at a later date.
