UK and Brussels working together

This month saw the introduction of the The Companies Act 2006 (Substitution of Section 1201) Regulations 2009 strictly speaking they come in to force on 28 December 2009. The Regulations seek to mirror the Directive 2006/123/EC on Services in the Internal Market (http://commercial.practicallaw.com.lawdbs.lawcol.com/1-378-7807) and will assist in avoiding a conflict with the Directive by discriminating against partnerships or individuals who are established in other member states and who do not have a place of business in the UK.

The new Regulations stipulate that if you are an individual or partnership carrying on business in the UK and do not have a place of business in the UK, you must include an address where physical delivery of documents can be sent and a record acknowledging receipt can be obtained. Interestingly this new address does not have to be in the UK.
