About this set of documents

This set of documents has been drawn for a company to change its name. The reason to change the name is irrelevant. You are not required to state the reason to Companies House. Of course the change must be notified. 

The Companies Act 2006 allows you to change company name in two ways: either in a 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 are giving you the advantage of the new law by providing two complete alternative sets. You can either pass a resolution in general meeting or by the new written resolution procedure.

The draft minutes and notices provided here are of course as required by the Companies Act 2006. These sets of documents do not include the text of your proposed resolution. That is for you to insert. The text and layout are simple, in layouts accepted as standard. The wording can be added or edited easily.

The included documents are:

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