The office of a company is very important, as it is the address at which any legal documents will be served on the company. Companies are required by law to ensure that this information is up to date, and maybe liable for a fine or prosecution if it is found that the information is not up to date. The Companies Act requires all companies to keep records of their minutes, resolutions and decisions, as well as the financial statements and share register at a location that has been declared. A notice of the location of the company records must be filed with the CIPC only if the company records are not kept at its registered office or address.
