This guide explains how to register an overseas company that opens an establishment in the UK. It also provides guidance on the disclosure obligations subsequent to such a registration. It outlines the documents you must send to Companies House and some of the important rules on accounting requirements, names and trading disclosures. You will find the relevant law in the following places,

Part 34 Companies Act 2006(sections 1044 to 1059 inclusive);
the Overseas Companies Regulations 2009; and
the Overseas Companies (Company Contracts and Registration of Charges) Regulations 2009.
If, after reading this guide, you are in doubt about your responsibilities, you should consider seeking professional advice.

Some provisions of the Companies Act 2006 are subject to transitional arrangements which can be found on our website.
