The new Persons of Significant Control (PSC) Register will also need to be filed at Companies House along with the confirmation statement – for more information on how to prepare your PSC Register then please see our April briefing here.
The confirmation statement requires some of the same information as an annual return to be filed at Companies House, in addition to all of the new information from your PSC Register.
- details of any change of registered office;
- details of company registers relating to directors, company secretaries (if appropriate) and the new PSC register;
- details of where a company keeps its records if they aren’t kept at its registered office (a ‘SAIL’); and
- notice of any change in the charity’s activities.
It is important to note that Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs), unincorporated organisations and charitable trusts are not required to file a confirmation statement or a PSC register at Companies House. However, there will still be a requirement for these charities to file their accounts and annual returns with the Charity Commission, as before.
