Introduction

If you are involved in advising companies (or have any dealings with Companies House filings), then this virtual classroom seminar is for you.

The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act ('ECCTA') received Royal Assent on 26 October 2023. The ECCTA builds on the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act, which introduced the Register of Overseas Entities in August 2022. Register of Overseas Entities - Implications for Filings at Companies House

The ECCTA, once in force, will radically change the nature of the Companies House Register. Many of the proposed changes will affect every company on the register.

This session will update you as to likely reform impact, including discussing how best to prepare for the impending changes.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Proposed implementation dates (including what is expected first and when, including measures expected early 2024)
  • Identity verification for directors, PSCs, and those filing information at Companies House
  • Extension of Companies House powers to investigate, corroborate, reject, amend and/or remove information (including PSC regime changes)
  • Additional requirements for registered office addresses/email addresses
  • Protection of personal information
  • Changes to statutory register requirements
  • Reform of company accounts
  • New corporate offence of failure to prevent fraud
N.B. This session will not cover amendments to the Limited Partnership regime or proposed changes impacting Register of Overseas Entities.
