CC02 Notice of Removal of Restriction on the Company's Articles

The Articles of Association is a document which sets out the provisions of a company’s constitution. Normally a company’s constitution can be changed by a special resolution. This means that at least 75% of the shareholders by value must vote in support of the changes.

Sometimes the person who incorporates a company will want to “entrench” specific provisions in the articles and make them difficult to change at a later date. This can be done by specifying some additional condition or procedure which must be observed before a change to these provisions can take effect.

Companies House will keep a record of any restrictions on the articles, and if those restrictions are removed, the officers of the company must notify Companies House by completing this form.

This form can be downloaded directly from the government website here.
