About this set of documents

The reason you wish to terminate the auditors’ contract is not relevant. It arises most commonly either out of a disagreement as the what should be shown on the face of the accounts or out of a requirement of the executive directors to be seen to be acting within their authority on this sensitive issue.

The Companies Act 2006 allows the members to remove an auditor through general meeting. To do this you need an ordinary resolution (50% approval) to be passed. This is a matter where the law requires to serve special notice of 28 days. The reason is, to give time for the auditor to make a statement of his case.

This means for removal of auditor you cannot call a general meeting on a short notice as in resolving most of the matters you do. The draft minutes and notices provided here are of course as required by the Companies Act 2006. This set of documents does not include the text of your proposed resolution. That is for you to insert. The reason to remove the auditor should be clearly mentioned in resolution text so that every member is in no doubt as to what he will be asked to vote for or against. The text and layout are simple, in layouts accepted as standard. The wording can be added or edited easily.

The included documents are:

  1. Minutes of meeting of the directors
  2. Notice of General Meeting
  3. Minutes of General Meeting
  4. Proxy voting form

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.
