Sky Sec Beneficial Owners Overview

The Beneficial Owners Tab will allow the calculation of how the Beneficial Owners are made up by generating a Beneficial Owners Register. By selecting reports an Organogram of the shareholders drilling right down to the ultimate individual owner is produced.
The Share Capital Makeup at the top of the screen shows the structure of the share capital class you are working with. Please note there may be multiple share clases in a company that need to be dealt with and may need to be excluded from the beneficial ownership calculation. When you run the beneficial ownership calculation it will run the calculation for all the shareclasses which may include shares that are not part of the owners equity, which is what you do not want. We have added a check box which if ticked will exclude the share ownership from the share class displayed.
The Share Ownership is shown in the middle of the screen and drills down to the individual owner.
The table at the bottom of the screen shows the Beneficial Ownership Register which can produce a report.
The Beneficial Ownership Register can be printed or exported as well as printed in an organogram format as shown below. Where the CIPC asks for a disclosure document the organogram may be used for this purpose.
