UK government response to consultation on Corporate Transparency and Register Reform Government: response to the consultation on options to enhance the role of Companies House and increase the transparency of UK corporate entities

The UK government has recently published its response to an earlier consultation on the registration of limited partnerships, LLPs and companies. The response includes proposals to require identity verification of those who register such businesses, and of some participants in them (but only general partners of limited partnerships, and designated members of LLPs), and provisions to enable the striking off of limited partnerships from the register (something which is currently impossible).

BEIS, 'Corporate Transparency and Register Reform: Government response to the consultation on options to enhance the role of Companies House and increase the transparency of UK corporate entities' (September 2020) is available at:  https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/919356/corporate-transparency-register-reform-consultation-government-response.pdf
