History

Prior to 1961 the registration of companies was a function of the Supreme Court. Following the passing of the Companies Act in 1961, a Registrar of Companies was appointed to administer the Companies Registration Office which was controlled by Crown Law Department. The functions of the agency were transferred to the Corporate Affairs Office on 16 July 1975 and the Companies Registration Office was abolished.
