To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, if he will outline his planned timetable for reforms to enable Companies House to introduce a power to query and check information and identity verification.
4 February 2022
The Government’s plans for reforms to Companies House will deliver significant improvements to the integrity of the UK’s register of companies and assist greatly in the fight against economic crime. These reforms will include the identity verification of directors, People with Significant Control and those filing on behalf of a company, and new powers for the registrar to query and check information.
We will legislate when Parliamentary time allows.
