Companies: Registration

Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 69408, tabled on 6 July 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, when he plans to publish the response to the consultation on Corporate Transparency and Register Reform that closed in August 2019.

The Government is currently considering a broad package of reforms to Companies House to ensure it is fit for the future and continues to contribute to the UK’s business environment. This would amount to the most significant reform of the UK’s company registration framework since a?companies?register was first introduced in 1844, and it is important, therefore, to take the time to get it right.

The consultation received a significant number of responses and an official government response with detailed proposals for the way forward will be published in due course.
