From 6 April 2016 all companies and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) are required to maintain a register of Persons with Significant Control which must be kept with their statutory records and be available for inspection upon request.

Since 30 June 2016 companies and LLPs have had to submit details of their Persons with Significant Control register to Companies House with their Annual Compliance Statement.

The government has proposed that limited partnerships will have to file more detailed compliance statements in future. It is expected that this will take effect sometime in 2020.
