On 14 December, the FATF-style regional body for Latin America, GAFILAT, published this report dated April 2020. Its purpose is to introduce the practices, challenges and barriers that exist in the GAFILAT member countries regarding the availability and access to basic and beneficial ownership (BO) information. Likewise, based on the challenges identified, the work presents proposals, best practices and lessons learned from both Latin American countries and the rest of the world. The last section of the paper presents a possible road map, depending on each country’s context, as well as a list of resources adopted by different countries to overcome obstacles to increased transparency.
