Article summary

Corporate analysis: On 26 June 2017 the regime for investigating and recording information about people with significant control (PSC) over companies and other entities was extended and enhanced. Reporting entities are now required to update their own registers within 14 days, and to update the information held on the central register at Companies House within a further 14 days. This is a significant change from the previous position where centrally-held PSC information was updated via the annual confirmation statement. In addition, the scope of the regime has been extended to cover unregistered companies, companies listed on prescribed markets such as AIM or the NEX Exchange Growth Market, and eligible Scottish partnerships. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
