The UK Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Act adds the following objectives to the company registrar's functions:

1. To ensure that any person who is required to deliver a document to the registrar does so (and that the requirements for proper delivery are complied with).
2. To ensure that information contained in the register is accurate and that the register contains everything it ought to contain.
3. To ensure that records kept by the registrar do not create a false or misleading impression to members of the public.
4. To prevent companies and others from:
(a)carrying out unlawful activities, or
(b)facilitating the carrying out by others of unlawful activities.

Reporting responsibilities and burdens on companies and their officers are increased in line with these objectives.
