Restoring a Foundation to the Register

Please note: These guidance notes are not intended to be definitive legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. The interpretation of legislation is a matter on which the Guernsey Registry cannot advise and entities/individuals need to form their own independent view on compliance with the legislation. Independent legal advice is advised where there is any uncertainty.

Foundations which have been struck off of the register can apply either to the Royal Court or to the Registrar to restore it to the register, as long as the application is made within 5 years of the date it was struck off.

The guidance notes below give information on the process and the differences between a Court restoration and an administrative restoration by the Registrar.
