Register of people with significant control over the company - the PSC register
17 November 2016
From 6 April 2016 most UK companies and LLPs are required to keep this new type of register among their statutory books. This is a register of individuals or legal entities that have significant control over the company or LLP.
From 30 June 2016 those companies and LLPs must send this information annually to Companies House with their confirmation statement (which replaces the annual return) and on incorporation.

This note concentrates on PSC registers of companies. The requirements for LLPs are similar.
