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are taking a more ‘practical’ view on company statute and are making some impressive ‘common-sense’ amendments to an outdated CA85.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.
