The Mutuals Public Register is the public record of registered mutual societies:

  • building societies
  • credit unions
  • friendly societies
  • registered societies

It contains:

  • details of societies’ registered offices and contact information
  • the services they offer
  • public documents such as yearly returns and accounts

If a document you want is available online, you will need to pay to download it.

Once you download a document from the register, it will appear in the ‘My documents’ section, and you’ll need to log into your account to get it.

If the document isn’t available online, you can ask for a paper copy.
