EFIS 61, October 2005 : Company

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Companies Forms (Amendment) Regulations 2005 have represcribed these forms to take account of the abolition of Stamp Duty (except on instruments relating to stock or marketable securities) under Part 4 of the Finance Act 2003 and to reflect the alteration to section 88 of the Companies Act 1985 by the Stamp Duty Land Tax (Consequential Amendment of Enactments) Regulations 2003.

Because CO88(2) and CO88(3) are officially prescribed by regulations, existing forms may be used in relation to allotments before 1st December 2005 and for returns of allotments submitted before 31st October 2006 in relation to allotments completed on or after 1st December 2003.

Practitioners must therefore decide whether to retain their existing versions of CO88(2), CO88(2)c and CO88(3) or not. In the event of doubt, please contact Companies House.

The amended versions of these three forms which Companies House has approved are supplied for your use.

To bring the form titles of the CO88(2)c and CO88(3) in line with the rest of the range, we have altered the current titles CO88(2C and COG88(3), could you please therefore delete forms CO88(2C and COG88(3) after the 1st December as these forms will be obsolete.

CO1B has received a slight textual amendment and is available for your use.
