In our ninth SBEEA alert, we look at the important changes to the information that companies must file at Companies House from 30 June 2016 onwards.
These changes have been introduced by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 as part of the drive for increased transparency and cutting red tape. These changes can be divided into the five areas:
1. The new confirmation statement which will replace the annual return.
2. Filing PSC details at Companies House.
3. Statement of capital and how it is changing.
4. Incorporations - additional information to be filed.
5. Central registers.
This phase of implementation of the SBEEA is one of the biggest changes in relation to Companies House filings since the introduction of the Companies Act 2016.
