Combat Corporate Theft and Prepare for the New Companies Act

21 February 2007

Companies House to present two speakers at the Digita Conference in March.

Over the next couple of years Companies House and its customers will see some of the biggest changes for decades, affecting both the legal framework for the regulation of limited companies and the technology used to apply it.

The first speaker Arthur West leads Companies House e Services Delivery Programme and has been at the forefront of revolutionising information access and exchange capability. He will be reporting on the progress of Companies House ambitious plans for new electronic services based on the latest XML technology and describing how these can benefit practitioners.

Compliance work can quickly steal highly profitable time and resources, Arthur will be examining ways that practitioners can leverage technology to keep ahead of the game.

While rolling out technological changes with one hand, from a new core database to extending the types of company accounts that can be filed online, with the other hand Companies House must implement the Companies Act 2006, the biggest statute ever passed by Parliament.

The second speaker, Phil Coates, Companies Act Implementation Manager at Companies House, will be providing a heads up for practitioners on some of the key changes in the Act, as well as providing the latest predictions for how and when they are likely to be implemented.

Arthur and Phil have taken time out from their busy schedules to lead several conference sessions, including demonstrations of current compliance technology.

The 2007 Digita Annual Conference takes place at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club near Coventry on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March.
