Further developments on Companies Act 2006 - Implementation Stage 6 April 2008
The staged introduction of Companies Act 2006, has already made interesting reading. It appears as though the ASB are taking a more ‘practical’ view on company statute and are making some impressive ‘common-sense’ amendments to an outdated CA85.
The next stage, is anticipated to be rolled out for implementation from 6th April 2008. The major developments worthy of mention are
Private companys are no longer required to have company secretaries.
- There is a shorter filing period as mentioned in a previous blog (private companies have 9 months).
- There are no longer any medium sized group exemptions (ie all non-small groups will need to consolidate).
- The turnover exemption for medium sized companies has also been abolished.
