About this set of documents

This set of document has been drawn specifically for a company making amendments to its articles of association.

The alternative is for a company adopting a new set of articles.The Companies Act 2006 allows you to amend articles of association in two ways: in 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).

Use this document set to make one or more changes to your existing articles of association. It does not matter whether they are old style or based on the Companies Act 2006 model articles or your own tailored version.

We have taken advantage of the new flexibility of law and giving you 2 sets, which are simple and effective - and in plain English of course. So whether you are passing a resolution in general meeting or by written resolution this should suit you well.

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. It could be amendment of one article or it may run to twenty articles. The text to amend your articles is simple, in layouts accepted at Companies House. The wording can be added or edited easily.
