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.
