This handy new book provides a reference collection of all the texts of default articles of association which have applied to companies registered since 1856. As such it offers a reference source for lawyers giving advice to private companies on the text of the articles of association relevant the point of formation of the company.

There are currently seven main sets of default articles, dating from 1856, 1862, 1906, 1908, 1929, 1948 and 1985. The 1948 and 1985 sets have been repeatedly amended. This collection of default articles will also include any new default articles under the new Companies Act 2006.

Derek French's commentary provides a summary of the law and articles of association including any changes made by the Companies Act. Each provision of each set of articles is followed by a note giving the equivalent provision in the preceding and succeeding texts so that historical development can be traced.

  • The only publication that includes default articles from 1856 to the present
  • Clearly sets out when each version was in force and dates any amendments were made
  • Easy to search chronological order
  • Includes linking text which provides guidance on the law relating to articles of association
  • Provides extracts from statutory provisions which override articles of association, for example, on use of electronic communications
  • Includes the model articles for guarantee and unlimited companies.
