HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 c24W
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.
