With effect from 23 April 2023, company directors will be required to provide their PPS numbers in order to file certain documents with the Companies Registration Office. One purpose of this important step is to reduce the incidence of companies being incorporated based on false director details. Failure to comply, without just cause, will be a criminal offence. Given the reasons underlying this requirement, the CEA will, as appropriate, take prosecutions where non-compliance comes to our attention. In order to assist company directors in understanding their new obligations, the CEA has prepared an Information Note.
