In the landscape of corporate governance and regulatory compliance in India, the concept of significant beneficial ownership (“SBO”) has lately emerged as a critical focal point. This heightened attention is primarily due to a series of rigorous actions taken by the various Registrar of Companies (“RoCs”) against notable entities, including multinational giants such as LinkedIn and Samsung. These developments underscore the increasing importance for businesses to thoroughly understand and adhere to SBO regulations not only to maintain transparency but also to avoid punitive measures.
