Corporate Transparency and Register Reform: Consultation response

Consultation response on new proposals to enhance the role of Companies House, increase the transparency of UK corporate entities and help combat economic crime.

We welcome the invitation to contribute to this public consultation on the reform of Companies House administration and legislation.

The early stage nature of the consultation, and commitment to engage with all interested parties throughout an iterative process is particularly welcome, as is the recognition that revising the processing of information is as important as revising the legal framework surrounding it. A timely and coordinated programme of reform, along with a commitment to full and effective resourcing, offers the best hope for long term improvement in meeting the goals set out by BEIS.
