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. Detailed below are the registers that are administered at these offices and those registers that will be administered in the future.


Guidance notes 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.

Mark Whiteley -  Former Registrar of Companies

It is with sadness we note that Mark Whiteley, the former Registrar of Companies, passed away suddenly on 9 November 2014 .

Mark was instrumental in launching the Guernsey Registry and his legacy in modernising company incorporation in Guernsey continues. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Guernsey Registry now accepts applications for the registration and ongoing administration of charities and NPOs. Information regarding charities can be found on the Registry website here:

Queries regarding specific tax issues relating to charities and NPOs (such as charitable status for tax purposes, the repayment of tax in respect of charitable donations etc) should still be directed to the Income Tax Department.
