Companies to UK Company Law

The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act received royal assent on 26 October 2023

The act gives Companies House the power to play a more significant role in tackling economic crime and supporting economic growth. Over time, the measures are intended to lead to improved transparency and more accurate and trusted information on Companies House registers.  

There will be new responsibilities for: 

  • All new and existing company directors 
  • People with significant control of a company (PSCs) 
  • Anyone who files on behalf of a company.
