Products & Services

The main functions of the Guernsey Registry are to examine and store information on various registers as required under Guernsey legislation. The Registry is required to make some of this information available for public inspection.


Guidance notes for all Registry products and services are available in this section. They have been arranged by subject matter. Guidance notes are also available for download on the relevant pages throughout the site.


This section includes notices from the Registrar in accordance with the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008, organised by year and month. Any person who is directly affected by a decision of the Registrar may apply to the Royal Court under Section 511 of the law for an order that the decision be set aside or modified.
