EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations repeal, with effect from 13th September 1999, certain provisions in section 364 of the Companies Act 1985 (which specifies information to be included in the annual return delivered to the registrar of companies under section 363 of the Act). The Regulations repeal the provisions requiring companies to list the other directorships and former names of individual directors, to list the other directorships of corporate directors, and requiring private companies to state whether resolutions are in force enabling the company to dispense with the laying of accounts and reports before the company in general meeting, or to dispense with the holding of annual general meetings.
