Cheques only for Companies Registration Office listings as digital upgrade proceeds

13 Jun 2019 / business Print

Digital upgrade limits CRO users to cheques only

The Companies Registration Office (CRO) customer account for limited partnership applications is temporarily disabled while digital transformation pushes ahead.

It is not currently possible to pay for limited partnership applications LP1, LP2, LP3, LP4, P1 using the CRO customer account. These documents should be paid for by cheque.

The CRO registry of friendly societies is now complete and the CRO is moving on to finalise the limited partnerships register. While all applications will remain paper-based for the time being, it will be possible or order copies of documents online. These documents should also be paid for by cheque.


Since the beginning of the month, the Registrar of Companies has decided 

to utilise powers under section 898 of the Companies Act 2014, to introduce a 14-day limit on returning certain post-incorporation forms that have been sent back to the presenter for amendment.

If the amended documents are not returned within that 14-day limit they will be deemed to have never been received.

This applies to forms such as those related to ordinary and special resolutions,amendments to constitutions, allotment of shares, changes to share capital, and summary approval procedures.

Those filing documents in relation to summary approval procedures are reminded to include the presenter’s full details. Inadequate details will cause a delay in the return of these documents where amendments are required to be made.
