I welcome the news that the Crown Dependencies intend to adopt public registers of company ownership. They have listened to Parliament’s call for greater transparency. But proposed time frame is far too long & they must set out details of how truly open registers will be setup.
Company registration is a fiercely competitive arena. Yet one with surprisingly little in the way of formal professional monitoring. ACRA, the Association of Company Registration Agents, was established to encourage high standards amongst agents and to act as an open forum for those involved in the industry.
The only recognised trade association for company registration. ACRA works closely with various Government departments including Companies House, HM Treasury, BEIS, and HMRC.
Membership of ACRA acts an endorsement of the quality of the service you provide and gives customers confidence that they are dealing with people they can trust. It’s no coincidence that our membership base accounts for over half of all UK company registrations carried out in the private sector.
