Section 165: Register of directors’ residential addresses

293.This section is a new provision. It requires companies to keep a register of the usual residential addresses of directors who are individuals. Provided that a director’s service address is not the company’s registered office, if his/her residential address is the same as his/her service address, then the register need only contain an entry making that clear. This register is not to be open to public inspection, but can be used in accordance with Chapter 8 of this Part.
