Companies House reform - what the key changes mean for accountants?

You'll hear from:

The new Companies House reforms are intended to combat economic crime. In this episode of Any Answers Live we’ll explore the impact these reforms will have on anti-money laundering regulations and the role of Companies House.

The war in Ukraine has accelerated the planned changes to Companies House, and led to the government issuing its corporate transparency and register reform whitepaper with the detailed proposals, accompanied by a draft economic crime Bill.

The impact of these proposed changes on those who are not money launderers – but just law-abiding business people with registered companies, together with their accountants – is potentially significant. 

The big headline from the reforms is that micro and small companies will lose options for abridged or filleted accounts and will have to report profit and loss (P&L) statements.

This has created alot of debate and discussion on AccountingWEB and Any Answers and this will be your chance to hear from experts and ask your questions on the implications of the changes to Companies House. 

The panel will also discuss what the changes mean for dormant companies, the reaction from businesses, and how successful they think the changes will be in clamping down on fraud.
