Introduction

The registrar of companies has a range of powers which are in Part 35 of the Companies Act 2006 (the Act). That legislation is applied to limited liability partnerships (LLPs) by the Limited Liability Partnerships (Application of Companies Act 2006) Regulations 2009. These include powers to:

- decide on the form, manner of delivery and authentication of documents

- enter into an agreement with companies for an electronic only filing service for certain documents (currently referred to as PROOF)

- amend the register in certain circumstances

- annotate the register in certain circumstances

- set fees for the performance of any of the registrar's functions

This guidance tells you what these powers are, and gives you an idea of how and when they work. They apply to all companies and LLPs.

If you are in any doubt about the application of these powers please email our enquiries section or call 0303 1234 500.
