Accountancy Daily on 5th December reported that Companies House has issued guidance that UN sanctions have led to extra checks on applications to register some corporate bodies in order to ascertain if ‘designated persons’ are involved.  From 12th December, Companies House will check the details of proposed directors, secretaries, members and people with significant control in all new applications to assess whether or not a designated person is named.  This applies to applications to register UK companies; European companies (SE); limited liability partnerships (LLP) and Scottish limited partnerships (SLP).  If it believes the details sufficiently match a designated person, the application will be rejected.
