This month, the Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank) introduced a new Acquiring Transaction Notification Form to be used when notifying the Central Bank of changes in control in respect of firms authorised under the Investment Intermediaries Act 1995 (as amended) (IIA). Previously, notifications by letter were acceptable. The Form requires information regarding (amongst other matters) details of the proposed holding, an overview of the proposed acquisition and a signed declaration confirming that the information provided is true and accurate.
