Registry offering limited services
We wanted to provide you with an update on our Registry services. This follows new working from home guidance issued by the Government of Jersey and our preparations to launch myRegistry on 6 January 2021.
Following the new Government of Jersey guidance on working from home, Registry will now only be accepting email queries.

Registry processing time leading up to the launch of myRegistry
Whilst we prepare for the launch of myRegistry on 6 January, we are restricting certain high volume filings from 22 December 2020 until the new system is launched. This will allow us to maintain normal service levels for critical tasks. During this time we will be restricting:
- special resolutions including dissolutions
- beneficial ownership and controller changes
- registered office changes
- non urgent bulk requests
Special resolutions for dissolution
After Monday 21 December 2020, we will not accept any special resolutions for dissolution requests via Easy Company Registry, or by any other means, until the launch of myRegistry on 6 January 2021.
For any resolutions that need to be recorded on or before 31 December 2020, please:
- email Registry@jerseyfsc.org, specifying the individual entities by 31 December 2020
- log a request in myRegistry by 18 January 2021
Any resolutions submitted via Easy Company Registry after 21 December 2020 will be returned.
Updates to beneficial ownership and significant person information
After Monday 21 December 2020, we are not accepting any beneficial owner and controller updates until the launch of myRegistry on 6 January 2021. Any submitted beneficial owner and controller updates received during this period will be returned.
Under the current legislation and Control of Borrowing Order (COBO) regime, entities are required to update us on changes to beneficial owner and controller information within 21 days of any change. We have made an exception to this for any changes between 21 December and 6 January and will deem the 21 days to start after the launch of myRegistry on 6 January 2021.
On 6 January 2021, the Financial Services (Disclosure and Provision of Information) (Jersey) Law 2020 (“the new Law”) comes into force. Under the new Law, entities need to provide us with the beneficial owner, controller, significant person, and member information. We must be notified of any changes to the beneficial owner, controller or significant person information within 21 days of change.
In the first instance, this information is provided by submitting a transition application on myRegistry which, this year, is due by 30 April 2021. After entities have completed their transition application, we expect that any changes to significant person information are submitted within the 21 day notification period.
Registered office address changes
After Monday 21 December 2020, we are not accepting any changes to registered office addresses until the launch of myRegistry on 6 January 2021. Any changes submitted received during this period will be returned.
For any requests that need to be recorded on or before 31 December 2020, please email Registry@jerseyfsc.org specifying the individual entities by 31 December 2020.
Non-urgent bulk requests
After Monday 21 December 2020, we are not accepting any non-urgent bulk requests until the launch of my Registry on 6 January 2021. Any queries in relation to these should be sent to Registry@jerseyfsc.org
Please note, no paper submissions will be accepted.
