New reporting requirements for companies from 30 June 2016

28 Jun 2016 Governance

Charity solicitors Bates Wells Braithwaite reports that from 30 June, instead of the annual return, companies will be asked to submit a confirmation statement to Companies House, confirming all their filings are up to date. Importantly, in the confirmation statement companies will need to file details of their register of people with significant control (or PSC register) with Companies House for the first time:  these details will then appear on the public register.

From 30 June companies will also have the option of maintaining their statutory registers (eg members, directors, people with significant control) at Companies House.
