CC01 Notice of Restriction on the Company’s Articles

Under the Companies Act 2006, a provision which is contained in the company’s Articles of Association can be amended by a special resolution (i.e. with the agreement of at least 75% of the shareholders). However, in some cases the person forming a company may wish to “entrench” provisions in the articles by specifying some special condition which must be met before the provision can be changed. For example, a provision may specify that it can only be amended if a majority of 90% of shareholders agree.

Where there are any such restrictions on amending the Articles, the officers of the company must give Companies House notice using this form.
