Amendment To Articles Authorising Communications By Website
This Amendment to Articles of Association Authorising Communication by means of a Website is to be used by a Company that wishes to use the provisions of the Companies Act 2006 whereby shareholders and debenture holders will be deemed to have consented to communicate by means of a website. The first step a company must take is to either alter its articles or pass a resolution to authorise communication by means of a website.
Companies must also send an individual request for consent to each shareholder or debenture holder to whom it intends to send or supply documents or information by means of a website and that shareholder or debenture holder must fail to reply within 28 days. It is the failure to reply within 28 days which results in the shareholder or debenture holder being deemed to have given consent. A consent form is available through the related document links below.
These articles provides a regulation to be inserted into a company’s articles of association. It should be used in conjunction with either the “Shareholders' Written Ordinary Resolution” or the documents in the “General Meetings” subfolder depending on whether the resolution will be passed as a written resolution or at a general meeting.
