Charity News: Corporate transparency and register reform

Three major consultations took place over the winter that contained proposals that could significantly impact charitable companies. These included proposals for requiring all companies to file their accounts digitally with Companies House and a shortening of the filing deadline for doing so, the powers of the Registrar to query filed information and implementing the ban on corporate directors. These consultations ended in February and details of the outcomes are awaited.
