Consent to short notice of an EGM
This document is suitable to arrange a company meeting at short notice (less than the period of 14 days specified at law), as required by the Companies Act 2006.
It can be used for any private company, whether limited by shares or by guarantee.
The purpose of the meeting could be to pass an ordinary resolution or a special resolution.
If your company's articles of association do not set a specific notice period to hold a general meeting then you may call a meeting at shorter notice with the consent of the members. The majority required to agree is 90% or such higher percentage (not exceeding 95%) specified in articles.
The way members choose to give consent depends on the number of members and your company practice. An electronic means of communication is likely to be acceptable.Read More
