United Kingdom – Update to the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act

Companies House posted information about changes coming in March 2024 under the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act which received royal assent in October 2023. All companies must maintain an appropriate address as their registered office and may no longer use a post office box. The registrar will have greater powers to query and challenge information that appears to be incorrect or inconsistent with information held by Companies House.  All companies will need to provide a registered email address that will not be available to public and will be used by Companies House to communicate with the company. More information is available from Improving the quality of data on our registers – Changes to UK company law Improving Companies House data and Confirmation statement changes – Changes to UK company law.
