§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the present statutory charge for the provision of company information from the Companies Registration Office.
§ Mr. Fletcher
Any person may inspect a copy of any document kept by the Registrar of Companies at a fee of £1 for each inspection. Any person may also obtain a certified copy of any such document or a certificate on the incorporation of a company. The statutory fee is £1 for each occasion on which the registrar has to inspect the documents in order to produce the necessary copies, plus 30p per page so certified; in the case of certificates, the fee is £3.50 for the first certificate and £2.50 for any subsequent certificates supplied on the same occasion.
These fees were prescribed by SI 1980 No. 1749, under the provisions of section 37(1) of the Companies Act 1976.
