Shareholders' Written Special Resolution
This Shareholders' Written Special Resolution provides a template by which a Special Resolution may be passed using the written resolution procedure under the Companies Act 2006.
The Companies Act 2006 allows private companies to pass written resolutions much more easily and thus avoid the rigmarole of calling a meeting. It is expected that the majority of resolutions passed by private companies will now be written.
A written resolution is passed by the eligible members of the company indicating their agreement to it on a signed document which indicates the resolution to which he/she is agreeing.
This Shareholders' Written Special Resolution provides a template by which a Special Resolution may be passed by this procedure. At least 75% of the eligible members of the company must agree to a special resolution before it can be passed. You must simply enter the details of the resolution to be passed and you can then circulate the proposed resolution to the shareholders, which can be done electronically. If you want to pass an Ordinary Resolution you should download and use the “Shareholder’s Written Ordinary Resolution” via the link below.
Resolutions to remove a director or an auditor before his term of office has expired cannot be taken by written resolution.
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.
This template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
