Section 790N: Register to be kept available for inspection

445.Section 790N provides that a company’s PSC register must be kept available for inspection at its registered office or at a place specified in regulations under section 1136 of CA 2006 (‘Regulations about where certain company records to be kept available for inspection’). This is based on section 114 CA 2006, ‘Register to be kept available for inspection’. Failure to give notice to the registrar of where the PSC register is kept or of any change in that location is a summary offence punishable by fine. The offence is committed by the company and every officer in default (and see section 114(5) to (6) CA 2006).

446.An index will not be required to be kept in respect of the PSC register (in contrast with section 115 CA 2006 (‘Index of members’)). It is felt there will be few companies who have more than 50 entries. In addition, it is anticipated that most companies will have an electronic register that can be easily searched without the need for a statutory index provision.
