How to manage and share group company information? (Company Register)

Typically for an investment, a company will take care of the so-called company register. Usually, it is the legal department of a company that is responsible for keeping its subsidiary and other company information up-to-date.

Corporations are living entities and typically there are continuous group structure changes, as well as those commonly occurring in M&A activities. The Company Register is a place where this information is collected and stored. This might include, for example, essential information about:

  • Ownership structures
  • The responsible key employees and managers
  • Board member line-up and contact information
  • Procuration holders
  • Other power positions

The key here is that this information must be easily available to the entire organization, anytime and anywhere.

  • What are the ownership structures of a certain company?
