SBEE; The latest company admin changes

Another big change in legislation, the Small Business Enterprise and Employers Act still being rolled out by the government. But you don’t need to worry as the Spring release will provide you with the ability to create and generate a Persons of Significant Control register - very similar to the Director’s register with the addition of the ‘nature of control’. We have also provided you with the functionality to select directors, secretaries, shareholders and anyone from the non-client list when creating a Person of Significant Control register, ensuring another smooth piece of legislation.
