14/06/2017 Changes to Register: The following clients were removed due to over-declaration: Early Excellence (January to March 2016), National Federation of Occupation Pensioners (January to March 2016), Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (October to December 2016), Pocket Living Limited (January to March 2017). The client 'All Party Parliamentary Apprenticeships Group' (January to March 2017) was also changed to 'EAL, AAT, Battersea Power Station, BAE Systems, Heathrow, Creative Tech Consortium, OCR, Microsoft, Carillion, British Gas, sponsoring the provision of support services for the All-Party Parliamentary Apprenticeships Group'.

23/05/2017 Changes to Register: Connect Communications' affiliates list was amended. Duplicates for the following entries were deleted: Laura Blake, Sarah King, and Andy Sawford. The name Lora Burt was also removed from the companies list of affiliates.

21/12/2016: Connect Communications transitioned to new ownership during 2016. The Registrar subsequently identified that due to administrative errors, certain clients had been declared incorrectly, and those clients have now been removed. The new owners are not in a position to confirm that client declarations made prior to the change of ownership, were not subject to the same issues, and therefore those earlier entries should be viewed in the light of that.
