Keeping you on the right side of the Companies Act|
The Companies Act 2006 is the largest piece of legislation ever,
fully in force from 1 October 2009.
Offences under the Act can lead to fines for both the company and
its directors, disqualification and even imprisonment.
More than 100,000 companies are struck from the Register of Companies
each year, many for failing to comply with filing requirements.
Once dissolved their assets become the property of the Crown, the
Duchy of Lancaster or the Duchy of Cornwall. To release the assets
requires a formal restoration procedure which can be costly.
Directors can find their actions being called into question if they
act without due authority and/or fail to properly record events.
Credit ratings can be adversely affected where the public record
is incomplete or erratic in its filing history.
Companies formed under the 1985 Act need to seriously consider updating
their Articles to take full advantage of the 2006 Act and to remove
anomalies and inconsistencies. York Place can help by being in place
to carry out the compliance function, to keep the company from default
and to give comfort to the Directors.
