What legal registers must a company maintain?
Company law requires a company to prepare and maintain certain statutory registers, including:
- register of directors and secretary and a separate register of directors’ residential addresses
- register of members
- register of charges (if created prior to 6 April 2013)
- register of people with significant control (the PSC Register)
These registers, also known as the company’s statutory books, must be kept either at the company’s registered office or at another specified address and (other than the register of director’s residential addresses) are available for public inspection on payment of a fee.
The registers can be held in electronic form.
