Companies Act 2006 Registers of Directors' Addresses

Registers of Directors

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 - What Must be Kept & Where? guidance note.

Each document in the Register of Directors Addresses Sub-folder is fully compliant with the Companies Act 2006.

The documents in the Register of Directors Addresses Sub-folder are part of the Corporate folder. Access all Corporate documents for £35+VAT.
