Obligations of directors/members to the Registry
Company directors are legally obliged to file certain types of information with the Registry.
Failure to file this information, or to make notice of any changes to that information, is an offence and can lead to a company having to pay a fine and being struck from the Register.
In addition to maintaining company information on the Register, companies must also file with the Registry, an annual validation. This is a process where, rather than a company filing a lengthy annual return, a company director, or appointed secretary, may simply validate the information currently on the Register. Details of how to file an annual validation can be found in the Guidance Notes section of the website and in the specific annual validation section.
All obligatory submissions are made through the online services portal, which can be accessed via the button on the right hand side of the page. More information on how to make submissions online can be found in the 'How do I make company submissions online' section of the website.
For more guidance about what information needs to filed and when please see the guidance note entitled 'Annual Submission Requirements' or contact a member of the Registry team.
