Yes. The Companies Act requires every company to keep a register of its members at the company’s registered office. (Section 169 CA 2014).
Any member of the company may inspect the register free of charge, and any other person may inspect the register on the payment of a fee (Section 216 Companies Act 2014).
A member or any other person may request a copy of the register from the company on the payment of the relevant fee (Section 217 Companies Act).
Refusal or default by the company or any officer of the company in relation to the register is an offence.
If a company or officer fails to comply with a request, the requester can ask ODCE to assist them. ODCE can assist when a formal complaint form is completed and submitted to the Office.
