Guernsey Registry values, vision, mission, strategic objectives
In April the Registry started work on refreshing its values, vision, mission and strategic objectives, with the aim of clarifying the role of the Registry for all its stakeholders and helping to guide all of the Registry's staff in their work and objectives.
The Registry worked with representatives of its stakeholders, including Corporate Service Providers, industry groups, Registry staff and other States of Guernsey officials to gain their valuable feedback and agree a final version of the document. We would like to thank everyone who was involved in the process.
Companies struck off for failure to submit annual validation
On 20 May 2019, the Registry published details of companies that had failed to file an annual validation this year.
Those companies listed for strike off on 20 May that have not shown cause to the contrary (submitted an annual validation) have now been struck off.
Charities/Non Profit Organisations (NPO's) struck off for failure to file Annual Renewal
All Charities and NPO's registered under The Charities and Non Profit Organisations (Registration) (Guernsey) Law, 2008 are required to comply with Section 5 of The Charities and Non Profit Organisations (Registration) (Guernsey) Law, 2008 and apply to renew their registration by the end of January each year. The organisations which have failed to do this have been struck from the Register.
The Registry has published a list of these organisations which can be found here.
Note: Prior to 30th June 2014, the administration of Charities and NPO's was not undertaken by the Guernsey Registry, accordingly only organisations struck off following the renewal period of January 2015, of which the Guernsey Registry had oversight, are shown in the list.

The Registry maintains a directory of Guernsey Corporate Service Providers which is available here.
