Shareholders’ Special Resolution for Change of Name
If you want to change the company name, you must pass a Special Resolution in a general meeting or by written resolution and a printed copy of the special resolution must be sent to the Registrar of Companies within 15 days of it being passed together with Form NM01 and the £10 filing fee.
Special resolutions require the votes of 75% of members present in person or by proxy, who are entitled to vote and do vote at the meeting. The meeting at which the resolution is proposed must have had at least 14 days notice, unless a shorter period was agreed by a majority in number of members holding at least 90% of the shares (95% in the case of public companies).
Alternatively, the written resolution procedure can be used, and the special resolution will be passed if approved by shareholders representing not less than 75% of the total voting rights of the shareholders entitled to vote on the written resolution on the day it is circulated.
This Special Resolution - Change of Name is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
