About this document

This document is suitable for someone who is arranging a company meeting at short notice (less than the period specified at law for the business he proposes to transact at the meeting). It is 14 days - unless members agree to a shorter notice period. Use it to get thing moving in the right direction when you are short of time.

If your company's articles do not set specific notice period to hold members’ general meetings you may call meeting at shorter period, the majority required to agree is 90% or such higher percentage (not exceeding 95%) as may be specified in the company's articles of the voting rights.

The way members (holding 90% of shares) choose to give consent is irrelevant here and entirely depends upon the number of members and your company practice. They may do so through using any electronic means of communication. We have provided a template notice which the company will send to get consent of members.

The draft notice provided here is of course as required by the Companies Act 2006.

When you will use this document?

If you are a company secretary, director or otherwise administering a private company you may need this notice to conduct meeting at short notice. Where all other documents are ready just put it into the place to proceed.

As a matter of law, you cannot remove a director and auditor at a meeting called on short notice.
