The Companies (Forms)(Amendment) Regulations 1999 have represcribed the forms listed above and came into force on 13th September, although these 1999 Regulations expressly allow existing versions of these forms to be used until 13th September 2000.

88(2) has been altered in terms of how details concerning share allotment(s) are presented to Companies House.

288b has been reworded to make it clear that an appointment can be ended by means other than the resignation of an officer of a company.

363a, its continuation sheet and Schedule reflect the repeal of section 364 of the Companies Act 1985. In future, companies will no longer need to specify the former names of individual directors, their other directorships or whether any resolutions exist which enable a company to dispense with laying accounts and reports before general meetings.

Customers may use these amended forms on receipt of the enclosed disk.

*Note: These forms have lost the 'G' from their titles.


Year 2000 Date Changes
Additionally, forms which require date changes for the new millennium have been resupplied. These forms have no other editorial changes.
