The Companies Act 2006 requires companies to keep up to three different registers which relate to directors; a Register of Directors (Individuals), a Register of Directors’ Residential Addresses, and a Register of Directors (Corporate).
The Companies Act 2006 does not draw a distinction between corporate and individual directors in terms of the register, referring simply to a ‘Register of Directors’. However, Simply-docs has created separate registers for individual and corporate directors, owing to the different disclosures required of each.
The Register of Directors (Individual) only needs to contain a service address, which can be the company’s registered office. However, it is compulsory to keep a register of directors’ residential addresses, and changes must be notified to Companies House. This register is not open to inspection by the public.
More detail on which registers a company is required to keep can be found in our Company Registers & Records Guidance Note.
Each document in the Register of Directors Addresses Sub-folder is fully compliant with the Companies Act 2006.
