Document Templates for Amending Memorandum and Articles of Association

Amending Company Constitution

When businesses amend the company constitution, there are requirements to file documents at Companies House. There is no legal requirement for a company to change its Articles of Association as a result of any of the 1 October 2009 changes. However, directors should bear in mind that having a clear set of articles will assist them in complying with their new duties under the 2006 Act and operating the company efficiently. 

The Amending the Company Constitution subfolder provides template resolutions to be filed at Companies House. Special Resolution - Alteration to Articles of Association can be used to make these changes. The Letter to Companies House – Alteration Articles is to be used as a cover letter for all of the relevant documents when they are filed with Companies House for registration.

All documents in the subfolder are compliant with the Companies Act 2006.

Amending the Company Constitution is part of the Corporate folder. Access all Corporate documents for £35+VAT.
