Section 246: Putting the address on the public record

456.This section provides that, if the registrar is putting a director’s home address on the public record under the previous section, then the registrar updates the public record as if she had been notified that the service address is the director’s home address. She must also notify both the director and every company of which he/she is a director. The companies must each put the director’s home address on its register of directors as his/her service address. And for the next five years, the director may not register a service address other than his usual residential address.
