The Isle of Man Companies Registry will be launching a replacement public viewing system from 9am on Tuesday 22 September in line with the Isle of Man Government's Digital Strategy, which aims to provide the public with better, more efficient services.
The new system will provide the public with more reliable and faster access to the information that is currently available, such as company name and registration number, the registered office address and the date of incorporation.
For a small fee registered users are also able to see company documents such as prospectuses and accounts. Developing the new system is an important step towards providing a new modern platform upon which more services will be developed.
John Wilkinson, Director of the Central Registry, commented:
'The launch comes after months of hard work and will mean a better, faster search service for clients as well as providing the potential to offer more services online in the future, such as the digital submission of company documents and annual returns.
'I would like to express my thanks to our partners, Government Technology Services and PDMS, for the work and effort they have put into delivering this important project.'
As part of the system upgrade the current public search will be unavailable from 5pm on Friday 18 September to 9am on Tuesday 22 September. In addition, fast track document filing (i.e. incorporations) will be suspended from 5pm on Thursday 17 September until the launch of the new system.
