What’s a company register?

A company register is a register of organisations operating in a particular jurisdiction (excluding sole traders, individuals, partnerships and unincorporated associations). A company will have a duty to file its documents to that register (such as accounts, capital information, charges, confirmation statements and officers).

An example of a company register is the one maintained by Companies House in the UK that captures information on ‘Limited’ companies and ‘Limited Liability Partnerships’.
