What are a company's statutory registers?
Every company in the UK is required to keep up-to-date statutory registers and to provide access to them.
Also referred to as statutory books, company registers or company books, these registers are a statement at any one time of the ownership structure and control of the company.
They include the:
- Register of members and share ledger,
- Register of directors and secretaries,
- Register of directors' residential addresses,
- Register of charges, and
- Register of People with Significant Control or PSC register.
A UK company's statutory registers must be available for public inspection on request at the registered office unless an alternative address has been recorded at Companies House.
This alternative address is known as a Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL). After setting up a SAIL address the company can move as many registers to the SAIL address from the registered office as they choose by notifying Companies House.
