Consent to Short Notice: General Meeting to Change Company Name
This consent to short notice of general meeting can be used to obtain the consent of the shareholders to convene a general meeting to change the company’s registered name on short notice.
Ordinarily in accordance with section 307 of the Companies Act 2006, 14 clear days’ notice must be given of a general meeting. However private companies may agree to a shorter notice period if a majority of members agree. This majority must hold at least 90% of the shares giving the right to attend and vote at the meeting, however the articles can raise this to 95%. It will be necessary to check the articles to see if a 95% majority is required.
The consent form must be signed by each shareholder. The notice of general meeting should be attached to the consent notice.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
