Understand your Company articles and Company constitution. This Report is written in an easy-to-understand style and provides an in-depth appreciation of such things as all the model articles, the default provision, the resolutions that may be part of the constitution…
All companies have articles and all companies have a constitution.
It’s crucial that both elements are understood by directors, company secretaries, shareholders, legal staff and others. An investor looking to sell shares, for example, may not be aware that directors (with the authority of the articles) can refuse to register the transfer because they don’t approve of the proposed transferee. Such are the hazards involved.
Company Articles and Company Constitution provides a full and essential understanding of the subject matter, charting its evolution from the 19th century through to the implementation of the important but little understood Companies Act of 2006.
Written in plain English, the comprehensive report guides the reader through the resolutions and agreements that make up a company constitution. The changing relationship between the memorandum and the articles is explained, whilst a step-by-step guide systematically explores the articles and what to consider when changing them.
