About this set of documents

The reason you wish to appoint an auditor is simply because you do not have one.

However, you have no obligation under the Companies Act 2006 to have an auditor.

The requirement is simply to file accounts. Your accounts may be prepared by you, your granny or the guy next door. The advantage of a formal appointment is simply that information obtained by search at Companies House shows that you have done so.

That will give comfort to some searchers, particularly if your business handling large sums of money on behalf of other people.

You may also wish to appoint an auditor formally is to give confidence to your shareholders that someone other than you is keeping an eye on the money. This appointment may give than confidence even though the auditor will have no contractual liability.

This is a set of all the documents you will need to appoint an auditor of any private limited company. It comes to you in a single “Word” file for easy download and easy edit. The drafting notes explain fully, though we are sure most buyers will be familiar with these forms.

The included documents are:

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

The Act requires that minutes are kept of the meetings of directors of a private company. This set includes draft minutes.

The text and layout are simple, in layouts accepted as standard. The wording is also simple and can be edited easily, for example, to specify a particular class of shares or multiple classes or shares with a particular right.
