Ownership structure


For all businesses

The chart should show who has a financial interest in the business. Anyone with a 3 percent equity or more in the company must be named and the percentage of their holding shown. Anyone with a 10 percent or more equity is a financial controller and must submit an Annex A or, if responsible for a key management function, a personal licence application.

For medium to large businesses

If the business is part of a larger corporate structure it is acceptable to provide a single chart to show the group structure and the ownership structure. With a complicated ownership structure a commentary should also be provided in the business plan.
