About Control Statements

A ControlStatement is a declaration by a company or entity about how it is controlled. A company may have multiple entities controlling it (entites may be companies, people or organisations), in which case there will be multiple statements of control, or may have no entity controlling it in which case the statement can detail this fact together with the reasons. The controlling entities will be 'ultimate beneficial owners' if the company is stating that the controlling entities are natural persons who ultimately control the company in some way
