Minutes of AGM COVID 19 version

Corporate Insolvency & Governance Act Minutes of AGM


This template is no longer valid. The relevant provisions of the Corporate Insolvency & Governance Act 2020, which allowed purely virtual general meetings, lapsed on 30th March 2021. Normal rules regarding the holding of general meetings now apply.

The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (the Act) received Royal Assent on 26th June 2020. One part of the Act is that temporary changes have been made to certain corporate governance aspects of company law and specifically the introduction of greater flexibility for companies as to how they conduct general meetings, including annual general meetings (AGMs).

Note that private companies are not required under the Companies Act 2006 to hold AGMs, however many may have provisions in their constitution requiring them to hold an AGM each year. This template notice only relates to such private limited companies that are required to hold an AGM.

Companies that are required by their own constitution to hold an AGM have the flexibility under the Act to hold that meeting virtually up to 30 March 2021.

These template minutes relate to the holding of an AGM in compliance with the Act.

This template should only be used for the period during which the provisions as they relate to general meetings under the Act, are valid. These provisions may be extended further depending on the COVID 19 pandemic.
