Introduction of principal business activity (SIC codes) for new company formations

Applications to register a company will include a new requirement to state the company's principal business activity on incorporation. At least one trade classification code (SIC code) must be provided and up to four codes can submitted.

Please note that this requirement does not apply to applications to register Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs).
