UK: England and Wales: conviction for providing false information to the registrar of companies

Companies House is reporting what it suggests is the first prosecution under section 1112 of the Companies Act 2006: see here. Under section 1112 an offence is committed where a person knowingly, or recklessly, provides the registrar with a document that is misleading, false or deceptive in a material particular. The case concerned an individual, Kevin Brewer, who as part of the incorporation process gave the names of directors and shareholders who had not consented to be involved in the companies.

[On a related note, Companies House has, this week, published its business plan for 2018/19: see here (pdf)].
