- Shareholder and incorporator names and addresses will display as new formations are filed within SIMS (BE).
- The purpose will display as text and not as a code.
- MCA statutes will no longer be referenced.
- The records are variable length.
- There are new register codes (BE, BN, TM, etc.) and record types (AGENT, PRINCIPAL, etc.).
If there is not a value for a column, the column will be left blank.
