Statutory Registers

The Statutory Registers are what the Companies Acts require a Company to maintain once it is formed and registered at Companies House. A Company is required to safeguard the Statutory Registers and these must normally be kept at the Registered Office although alternative arrangements can be made with Companies House for an alternative location.

The Statutory Registers include:

  • Register of Shareholders
  • Register of Directors and Company Secretaries
  • Register of Applications and Allotments of Shares
  • Register of Share Transfers
  • Register of Share Certificates Issued
  • Register of Debentures
  • Register of Mortgages and Charges
  • Register of Director's Interests in Shares

In addition, a Company is also required to safeguard the Company Seal, letters of allotment, the Memorandum and Articles of Association, the Certificate of Incorporation, and the Minute Book. These together with the Statutory Registers make up the Statutory Books and Records.
