company books and registers

Did you know that all companies are under an obligation to keep company books and registers, but what are they?

When you form your new limited company you will be asked to provide the address of the registered office of the company. This must be a genuine address (not a PO box) to which official bodies e.g. Companies House or HMRC, can send important documents that require the attention of the directors.

A company should maintain records on their shareholders and directors. These records form the company’s statutory registers and should be kept at the company’s registered office or such other place as this notifies Companies House. This Act requires records to be maintained which provides a historical and an up to date record of matters affecting the company.
