Consultation on Companies House reforms

The government has launched a consultation on proposed reforms at Companies House, including a 'major upgrade' of its register.

The consultation aims to tackle misuse of the register. It also strives to provide business owners with 'greater protection from fraud'.

The consultation seeks views on a series of reforms to limit the risk of misuse:

  • knowing who is setting up, managing and controlling companies
  • improving the accuracy and usability of data on the companies register
  • protecting personal information on the register
  • ensuring compliance, sharing intelligence and other measures to deter abuse of corporate entities

Louise Smyth, Chief Executive of Companies House, said:

'This package of reforms represents a significant milestone for Companies House as they will enable us to play a greater part in tackling economic crime, protecting directors from identity theft and fraud, and improving the accuracy of the register.'

The consultation is open until 5 August 2019.
