Belong to the UK’s only recognised association for company registration agents and be part of a growing list of respected agents
As the only recognised trade association for the company registration industry, membership of ACRA carries a certain kudos. But it doesn’t end there. ACRA members have unique access to valuable information covering new thinking, current legislation and industry specific guidance on Anti-Money Laundering Regulations.
Whilst the ACRA Board meets regularly throughout the year, our general member meetings are popular events that provide a platform for opinions and for the discussion of current legislation or changes within the industry as a whole. We also hold an annual social event featuring prominent guest speakers such as the Registrar of Companies or similar senior personnel.
Downloadable documents of ACRA Board meetings and general meetings are also available.
