About this set of documents

This set of document is perfect for any existing company incorporated before the Companies Act 2006 came into force. You could amend existing articles, but we strongly advise against. The procedure and documents are the same either way, but the new articles give freedom and control in sensible ways. This file does not include the new articles themselves. We offer various alternatives of Articles of Association each covering a different scenario to create the exact business structure you want.

The draft minutes and notices provided here are of course as required by the Companies Act 2006. Use this document set if your existing articles based on old style Table A.

The Companies Act 2006 allows you to adopt articles of association in two ways, in members’ general meeting or by way of written resolution. Either way you need a special resolution (75% approval) to be passed by the members (shareholders).

We have taken advantage of this new flexibility by giving you two complete options, that is, two sets. Both are simple and effective - and in plain English of course. So whether you are passing a resolution in general meeting or by written resolution this should suit you well.

As with all Net Lawman documents, the drafting notes are immensely valuable. We give you comments and suggestions on every “document” enclosed in the set.

The included documents are:

Documents for a general meeting

  1. Minutes of meeting of the directors
  2. Consent to short notice for General Meeting
  3. Notice of General Meeting
  4. Minutes of General Meeting
  5. Proxy voting form

Documents for a written resolution

  1. Minutes of meeting of the directors
  2. Written resolution
  3. Statement under section 291(4)
  4. Member approval to written resolution

NOTE: In this set, we have provided documents required in both cases. You should use one set.
