Section 790Z: Effect of election on obligations under Chapter 3

466.During the period an election is in force, a company does not have to maintain a PSC register (subsection (2)). Where the election was made post-incorporation, the company must continue to keep the register that it was required to hold prior to the election (a “historic” register). However it does not need to update the historic register to reflect changes that occur whilst the election is in force (subsection (3)).

467.Rights contained in Chapter 3 of Part 21A, including the rights to inspect or require copies of the PSC register, continue to apply in respect of the historic register whilst the election is in force (subsection (4)).

468.The historic register must be annotated to state that an election is in force; the date of that election and that up-to-date information is available on the central register (subsection (5)). The offence applied in sections 790M (12) and 790M (13) (‘Duty to keep register’) applies equally to section 790Z(5).
