Companies Act 2006

Section 1075: Informal correction of document

1380.This is a new provision, giving the registrar power to correct information in a document by informal means (for example, by taking revisions or supplementary information from the company over the telephone) but only in very limited circumstances. It can be used as an alternative to rejecting or removing information:

  • on the grounds that it is incomplete (e.g. empty fields within the document);

  • on the grounds that it is internally inconsistent (e.g. the company number does not correspond to the company name);

1381.This ability to make informal corrections only applies where companies have informed the registrar that it should apply. The registrar needs to initiate the correction and be satisfied that the person is authorised to give the information sought. In order to be satisfied as to the authority of the person she is telephoning, the registrar may provide for identification numbers or other checks on identity.
