9 July 2020
On 26 June 2020, new legislation came into effect which provides additional flexibility and certainty for companies on how they can hold and conduct general meetings in the period up to 30 September 2020. It also extends the deadline for holding AGMs and for making certain filings at Companies House. An industry-backed guidance note has also been published which provides companies with practical guidance on how to apply the provisions in the legislation relating to general meetings in practice.
