Board Minutes to Change Company Name by Special or Written Resolution


These board minutes can be used to record the proceedings at a board meeting convened to change a company’s registered name by special resolution in accordance with section 78 of the Companies Act 2006. If there is another means provided in the company’s articles of association, the company may choose to change its name using that method instead. This is dealt with in the second set of board minutes provided within this group of documents. 

The company should confirm that its choice of new name complies with the Companies Act 2006, the Economic Crime & Corporate Transparency Act 2023 and all other relevant company names regulations.

These board minutes allow for the special resolution to be passed in a general meeting or via the written resolution procedure. Depending on which route is followed, the alternative will need to be deleted from these board minutes. These board minutes also allow for an adjournment so that the general meeting can be held or written resolution can be sent to all eligible members.

Following the passing of the special resolution, the company will need to file the appropriate form with Companies House. Form NM01 is the correct form for a change of name by resolution where there are no conditional requirements.

These minutes are designed to be used by a private limited company.

The document is in open format. Fields should be completed where indicated. Wording in square brackets is optional and can be deleted or retained according to requirements.
