Companies holding meetings and signing documents electronically
Work 16 November 2020
The Government has made another determination extending the timeframe within which companies can hold meetings electronically and enabling electronic signatures to be used, to relieve companies from problems they face due to the Coronavirus situation.
This determination is intended to be in effect until (and will be repealed from) 22 March 2021, unless the Government determines otherwise.
Editor: Note that the Government has also released exposure draft legislation to make these reforms (in respect of virtual meetings and electronic document execution) permanent.
