TEAM


The team constantly monitor and respond to feedback from customers on the Customer Services helpline: contentsupport@lexisnexis.co.uk.



UPDATING
EF&P is updated on a rolling basis throughout the year in response to changes in practice and the law. As a minimum, this means 1 release per month. A release may include:

  • A complete rewrite of material in a single title, including commentary and precedents

  • Amended precedents only

  • Information notes highlighting forthcoming changes

The team review the material across the titles, and new developments in the law and practice are reflected in title rewrites or selective updating.

EF&P is contributed by specialist authors; therefore all new legislation cannot be incorporated immediately.


Date stamps
Titles and precedents state when (and, where practical, how) they have been amended. Italic text under precedent headings, and bold text at the end of title overviews, show the date and nature of amendments. The dates on which titles were last reissued and amended are also in the list of titles and authors below.

Terms used in date stamps mean the following:

EFP 24(1): 11/2011 or Volume 24(1) Landlord and Tenant (Social Housing): 11/2011—This title has been reissued to take into account the law as at that date.

Fully revised 01/2012—This precedent or title has been revised to take into account all changes to the law made up to and including that date.

Last amended 01/2012—This precedent or title was last selectively amended on that date to take into account specific changes to the law. May also indicate an updating note to the title.

Amended 01/2012—This precedent was selectively amended on that date to take into account specific changes to the law. May also indicate an updating note to the title.

COMPANIES October 2018, vol 9(1)
Volume 9(1) (2018 Reissue) has been fully updated and revised to reflect recent developments, in particular the new requirements introduced by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 to keep a register of people with significant control and to deliver a confirmation statement.

Volume 9(1) contains a comprehensive commentary dealing with: the forming and registering of a limited company; drafting articles of association; buying an off-the-shelf company; drafting formation agreements and shareholder agreements; and the taxation implications of running a business through the medium of a limited company. The volume also includes a range of precedents dealing with the drafting of a company’s articles of association.

Volume 9(1) aims to put the complex rules and principles governing company law into a practical context and provides guidance relating to every stage of setting up a business using a limited company structure. Although the focus is necessarily on the legislative framework, discussion of relevant case law is integrated where appropriate. The commentary falls into five sections.

Section 1 of the commentary discusses the commercial considerations for forming a company, the procedure for forming a company under the Companies 2006 Act and the issues relating to the re-registration of an existing company. The section concludes with the publicity requirements imposed on a company, registers that the company must keep, and its obligation to file a confirmation statement (previously the annual return) and annual accounts.

Section 2 of the commentary considers the role and enforceability of a company’s articles of association and the different approaches to drafting the articles, before examining the model articles issued under the provisions of the Companies Act 2006 and suggesting possible amendments.

Section 3 discusses the advantages and disadvantages of buying an off-the-shelf company, describes the documentation usually provided and sets out the information that is likely to be needed to adapt the shelf company to the clients’ requirements.

Section 4 explores formation and shareholders’ agreements. Shareholders' agreements are looked at in some detail and the impact of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 is given where appropriate. Recent cases have been included to illustrate the concepts discussed.

Section 5, which covers company taxation, has been thoroughly revised and updated.
The precedents in volume 9(1) include checklists that set out the steps to be taken in applying for registration of a company. The volume also reproduces in full the different sets of statutory model articles of association made under the Companies Act 2006 and provides examples of commonly-used alternative forms of articles and of special articles to be used together with the model articles.
