Register of Persons Holding a Controlled Interest in Land (“RCI) – Extension of Transitional Period to 1 April 2024

Date: 24/01/2023 | Business & Professional Services, Construction, Healthcare, Planning, Real Estate, Residential Development

We have previously prepared briefing notes on RCI more generally here and for GP practices here.

The Scottish Ministers now propose to extend the compliance deadline by one year to 1 April 2024.

The requirement to register if you are in scope of RCI still applies from 1 April 2022, but offence provisions will not have effect until 1 April 2024.

If you believe you may be affected, or want to establish whether this applies to you, please get in touch and we can advise on what you will need to do in order to comply with the new reporting requirements.
