A beneficial owner is a person who enjoys the benefits of ownership in a particular property, even though the legal title of the property resides with another person. An example is the relationship between a beneficiary in a will/trust and a trustee. While the beneficiary is the equitable owner, the trustee is regarded as the legal owner.
