What records must a dormant company keep?


Hey people, what is the deal with records and dormant companies? As a limited company, there are loads of statutory records you need to hang onto in case inspectors would like to take a look. When you’ve got a dormant company, are there any records you should keep, too? Cheers, I appreciate the input!



A dormant company should (where applicable) keep the following records and registers at its registered office or alternative inspection location:

  • Certificate of incorporation
  • Memorandum and articles of association
  • Copies of issued share certificates
  • Statutory registers of members, directors and secretaries
  • Copies of directors’ and members’ resolutions
  • Minutes of meetings
  • Change of company name certificate
  • Accounting records - if the company was previously active

You can keep these company records in any format you wish, but they must be made available for public inspection upon request.
