Articles of Association

The Companies Act 2006 has introduced a new model set of Articles of Association with small businesses in mind.

The Articles of Association is a legal document which sets out the way in which a company is governed. It takes care of matters like shareholder rights, appointment of directors, general meetings etc.

The purpose is to make it simpler for the directors to run the business on behalf of the shareholders.
