Andrew Veitch (a partner in a London firm of solicitors in the West End of London W1 - Marylebone) is willing to  initially discuss (free of charge) your your company law requirements. In order to obtain your free evaluation, in the first instance, I suggest that you e-mail Andrew Veitch with your contact details and a description of your Company Law requirements and/or queries: andrew@guyclapham.com

The following provisions of the Companies Act 2006 will come into force on 1st October 2009:


From 1st October 2009 company directors can provide a service address which will be available on the public record instead of  their residential/home address. Directors may give any address for service including the company's registered office.

A director's residential address will still be required by Comapnies House, however the residential or home address  will be held on a separate register of residential addresses. Access will be restricted to separate register of residential addresses. Nevertheless, if a director continues to use their residential address as the address for service the register at Companies House will not disclose that that this address is their residential or home address. However, on 1st October 2009, unless a director notifies Companies House of a seperate service address a director's current residential address will automatically become the service address. Thus a director can notify the company of a service address to be included in the Register of Directors. This new service address should then be notified to the Registrar of Companies using form CH01.


If a person wishes to inspect a private company's records, they will have to give advance notice of the date and time they wish to carry out the inspection. The person inspecting the private company's records will be allowed to copy all or part of a records they are entitled to inspect.

Companies are also required to provide copies of records in the format that the inspecting person requests, be it a hard copy or electronic copy (even if this is not how the company stores the records.)


You are required to notify Companies House of any amendments to the company's articles within 15 days. If you fail to make the notification within the 15 day time limit the sanctions are that  you could be held to have committed a criminal offence and be fined £200.


All Companies House forms will change from 1st  October 2009. The new forms must be used for all matters on or after 1st  October 2009. If you submit an old form for matters on or after 1st October 2009 it will be rejected by Companies House. However, for matters  which took place before 1st  October the old 1985 Act forms should still be used.
