updated constitution template



We’ve updated our template constitution.  The new template is now available here.

The updates mainly reflect changes to underlying legislation – including the rules in the Companies Act 1993 relating to holding annual shareholder meetings, and the changes to the definition of “code company” for the purposes of the Takeovers Code.  Other changes are editorial corrections, and tweaks to reflect practical experience since the template constitution first went live in 2014.

The template constitution has been one the team comes back to again and again. It’s one of our top 20 most popular templates, and has been accessed almost a thousand times this year alone. 

Feel free to get in touch If you have any questions about the constitution, or you’d like some help adopting one for your company.
