New forms needed for Companies Act 2006 filings
With the commencement of the Companies Act 2006 (the 2006 Act), all the familiar forms used for Companies House filings under the Companies Act 1985 (the 1985 Act) changed. In addition to the changes to the forms themselves, the names of the forms changed.
Under the 1985 Act, forms were generally named after the section number of the 1985 Act that gave rise to the filing requirement. Under the 2006 Act, the form generally has a name that in some describes its purpose. For example, a return of allotments of shares under the 1985 Act was called a Form 88(2), after the relevant section number. Under the 2006 Act, an 88(2) is now an SH01 return of allotment of shares.
I can remember the name of the 1985 form. What is the name of the equivalent 2006 Act form?
Jordans, the “leading provider of UK and international corporate services, property and business information services”, has an excellent free tool on its website called “Forms on the Web“. You can select the name of the old 1985 Act form from a drop down menu, and “Forms on the Web” will show the equivalent 2006 Act form.
