Companies registered under the Overseas Companies Regulations

EEA companies which have registered with Companies House under the Overseas Companies Regulations will need to provide additional information from 31 December. The companies will have 3 months to update their records with Companies House, the information required will be aligned with that required for non-EEA companies:

  • Information on the law under which the company is incorporated;
  • The address of the principal place of business or registered office;
  • The company’s purpose (its objects);
  • The amount of share capital issued; and
  • If company is required to prepare audit and disclose accounts under their parent law, the accounting period and period of disclosure.

These changes will apply to companies already registered as overseas companies in the UK and to all new overseas company registrations made after exit day.

In addition, after 31 December, the company will also be required to include the following information on letterheads, websites and order forms:

  • Location of head office;
  • Legal form of company;
  • Its limited liability status;
  • Its share capital; and if applicable,
  • Notice that the company is being wound up or is subject to insolvency or any other similar proceedings.

An amended OSCH02 form will need to be filed with the Registrar. Forms will be available from 31 December.

Company Secretarial will deal with any letters forwarded to Menzies as the registered office, where we are not the registered office please forward to us letters sent to the clients which they might forward to you, and we will commence to update and file forms from January 2021.
