Offences for failing to provide information

555.Paragraph 14 provides that the penalty for a person failing to comply with a duty under section 790G or 790H or knowingly or recklessly making a false statement in respect of that duty is the same as that under paragraph 13 (see above). It is considered that the offences are sufficiently similar such that the same penalty should apply.

556.The offence will not apply to a person who could not reasonably have known that they were a registrable person or RLE in relation to the company or that a relevant change had occurred (see sections 790G(1)(b) and 790H(1)(c)).
