Parliamentary Star    

To move the following Clause—

 

         

“Companies House: due diligence and resources

 

(1)    

For the purposes of preventing money laundering, the Companies Act 2006 is

 

amended as follows.

 

(2)    

In section 1061 (the registrar’s functions) after subsection (1) insert—

 

“(1A)    

Functions directed by the Secretary of State under subsection (1)(b) must

 

include due diligence on a person wishing to register a company.

 

(1B)    

In this section “due diligence” has the same meaning as “customer due

 

diligence measures” in regulation 3 of the Money Laundering, Terrorist

 

Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations

 

2017 (S.I. 692/2017).”

 

(3)    

In section 1063 (Fees payable to the registrar), in subsection (2)(a) after

 

“Secretary of State” insert “including the duty of due diligence under section

 

1061(1A).”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would amend the duties of Companies House to ensure that any person wishing

 

to register a company must be checked for due diligence by Companies House, in line with the

 

measures included in the Money Laundering Regulations 2017. It also ensures that the Secretary

 

of State can charge fees for due diligence checks to cover costs incurred by Companies House.
