Changes to UK Company Law: Companies House Implements Robust Measures to Combat Economic Crime

by | Oct 27, 2023


The Economic Crime and Transparency Bill achieved Royal Assent and became law on 26 October 2023.  This means there are changes ahead in Companies House measures targeted at disrupting economic crime such as identity verification for all directors and increased enforcement powers for Companies House. 

Early measures include greater powers to query information provided to Companies House, new rules for registered office addresses (no PO Boxes) and for achieving better quality information on the register and data sharing with other law enforcement agencies.
