Title: Companies Act 2006
Post by Miss Ahmed on Nov 29th, 2008 at 2:54am
Does anyone happen to know whether the Companies Act 2006 is fully enforced. I know that most of it was enforced in October.  :-/

No, it is not fully enforced yet. Some parts do not come into force until 2009.

A quick summary seems to be available from BERR on the following page:
http://www.berr.gov.uk/whatwedo/businesslaw/co-act-2006/index.html  (see bottom of the page - link to Final Implementation Timetable).

In time, the full uptodate Act should be available from the Statute Law Database but it doesn't seem to have been updated yet for amendments in 2007 and 2008.  The link for now is:

It's such a myriad. The Act is so long and different parts come into force on different dates. Very confusing!!
