(a)transmit to its registered office a copy of every entry in its dominion register as soon as may be after the entry is made; and

(b)cause to be kept at the place where the company's principal register is kept a duplicate of its dominion register duly entered up from time to time. Every such duplicate shall for all the purposes of this Act be deemed to be part of the principal register.
