ADGM is proposing various changes to its legislation including, but not limited to:
- Abolishing the requirement to issue paper certificates & licenses
- Amending the definition of ‘members of the same family’ in the Companies Regulations
- Changing the name of “Annual Returns” to be “Confirmation Statements”

The objectives of the amendments are to improve efficiency in serving ADGM clients and to allow more flexibility to family offices wishing to utilize restricted scope companies in ADGM. These changes will also ensure that the ADGM commercial legislation is up to date with the international best practices as well as the mandatory onshore anti-money laundry legislation.
