About this document

If you need to arrange a meeting at quickly, you can use this document to obtain the agreement of members (shareholders) to do so.

The minimum full period of notice before a meeting can be held is 14 days, but the company’s articles of association may require longer.

That time can be reduced, if a majority of the members who have at least 90% of the voting rights agree. Some companies change the articles so that a greater percentage is required (but that must not exceed 95%).

We provide a template form that can be sent to a member to be signed if he or she approves. However, members may give consent in many ways, including by electronic communication, and your company may use an alternative method.

The document meets the requirements of the Companies Act 2006.

Note that as a matter of law, you cannot remove a director or an auditor at a meeting called at shorter notice.

What Our Clients Say
  • "I have used you in the past and am always impressed!"

    Diane Bantten (Acquit Debt Recovery)
  • "A great site for small business owners. I have required two documents and you have been able to provide both at a modest cost. Both documents have met with my requirements and saved me on legal fees. Keep up the good work."

    Warren Brogden
  • "I needed an Agreement and Google, as always, was where I headed. I found the Net Lawman site and initially I thought I needed a relationship type Agreement but the Lodger one was absolutely perfect.

    I didn't think it would be so easy so would recommend your website to anybody who was looking for an Agreement to suit their needs."
