Forming a Company Under the Companies Act 2006

The way to incorporate a company in the UK is changing. As of 01 October 2009 section 9 of the Companies Act will be implemented.

Under section 9 the following need to be filed:

  • the memorandum which will give details of the subscribers and will be signed by them
  • an application for registration, this will include the company name, registered office, if the company is limited by shares or guarantee, if the company is private or public
  • a statement of capital and the inititial shareholdings (this is basically replaces authorised share capital from the existing Act)
  • details of the proposed directors and secretary (if there is one)
  • a copy of the articles of association
  • a statement of compliance.

Unlike now a company will be able to form as either a private or public company.
