Opened 5 May 2019


We're consulting on new proposals to enhance the role of Companies House, increase the transparency of UK corporate entities and help combat economic crime.

The consultation seeks views on a series of reforms to limit the risk of misuse:

  • knowing who is setting up, managing and controlling companies
  • improving the accuracy and usability of data on the companies register
  • protecting personal information on the register
  • ensuring compliance, sharing intelligence and other measures to deter abuse of corporate entities



  • SMEs (small and medium businesses)
  • Large businesses (over 250 staff)


  • Economic growth
