Notice of General Meeting to Change Company Name
This notice of general meeting should be used when the directors have decided to change the company’s registered name by special resolution and are seeking to pass the resolution in general meeting rather than by the written resolution procedure.
The directors will need to convene a general meeting and this notice can be used for this purpose. In order for a meeting to be validly convened, a notice of meeting must be issued to all shareholders who are entitled to receive notice 14 clear days’ in advance (assuming the company's articles do not provide for longer) - unless all members agree a shorter notice period (see template Consent to Short Notice in this subfolder).
The notice must be clear and should specify the date, time and place of the meeting and state that the meeting is a general meeting at which a special resolution to change the company’s name will be considered. The special resolution must be set out in full in the notice.
The notice will be invalid unless it contains enough detail to allow a reasonable shareholder to judge whether he/she needs to attend the meeting.
The notice should be approved by the board before it is sent to shareholders. Please see our template board minutes in this subfolder.
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.
