but particulars of a charge may be delivered for registration by any person interested in the charge.

(2) Where the particulars are delivered for registration by a person other than the company concerned, that person is entitled to recover from the company the amount of any fees paid by him to the registrar in connection with the registration.

Effect of failure to deliver particulars for registration

406.  (1)  Where a charge is created by a company and no prescribed particulars in the prescribed form, are delivered for registration within the period of 21 days after the date of the charge’s creation, the charge is void against—

(a)an administrator or liquidator of the company, and

(b)any person who for value acquires an interest in or right over property subject to the charge,

where the relevant event occurs after the creation of the charge, whether before or after the end of the 21 day period.

This is subject to Article 407 (late delivery of particulars).

(2) In this Part “the relevant event” means—

(a)in relation to the voidness of a charge as against an administrator or liquidator, the beginning of the insolvency proceedings, and

(b)in relation to the voidness of a charge as against a person acquiring an interest in or right over property subject to a charge, the acquisition of that interest or right;

and references to “a relevant event” shall be construed accordingly.

(3) Where a relevant event occurs on the same day as the charge is created, it shall be presumed to have occurred after the charge is created unless the contrary is proved.

Late delivery of particulars

407.  (1)  Where prescribed particulars of a charge created by a company, in the prescribed form, are delivered for registration more than 21 days after the date of the charge’s creation, Article 406(1) does not apply in relation to relevant events occurring after the particulars are delivered.

(b)insolvency proceedings begin before the end of the relevant period beginning with the date of delivery of the particulars,

the charge is void as against the administrator or liquidator.

(3) For this purpose—

(a)the company is “unable to pay its debts” in the circumstances specified in Article 103 of the Insolvency Order, and

(b)the “relevant period” is—

(i)two years in the case of a floating charge created in favour of a person connected with the company (within the meaning of Article 7 of that Order),

(ii)one year in the case of a floating charge created in favour of a person not so connected, and

32.  The following Article is inserted in Part XIII of the Companies Order—

Delivery of further particulars

(3) Where further particulars are delivered to the registrar for registration and appear to him to be duly signed, he shall file the particulars in the register and shall note, in such form as he thinks fit, the date on which they were delivered to him.

(4) The registrar shall send to the company and any person appearing from the particulars to be the chargee, and if the particulars were delivered by another person interested in the charge to that other person, a copy of the further particulars filed by him and of the note made by him as to the date on which they were delivered..

33.  The following Article is inserted in Part XIII of the Companies Order—

Effect of omissions and errors in registered particulars

(2) The charge is void to that extent, unless the court on the application of the chargee orders otherwise, as against—

(a)an administrator or liquidator of the company, and

(b)any person who for value acquires an interest in or right over property subject to the charge,

where the relevant event occurs at a time when the particulars are incomplete or inaccurate in a relevant respect.

(3) Where a relevant event occurs on the same day as particulars or further particulars are delivered, it shall be presumed to have occurred before those particulars are delivered unless the contrary is proved.

(4) The court may order that the charge is effective as against an administrator or liquidator of the company if it is satisfied—

(a)that the omission or error is not likely to have misled materially to his prejudice any unsecured creditor of the company, or

(b)that no person became an unsecured creditor of the company at a time when the registered particulars of the charge were incomplete or inaccurate in a relevant respect.

(5) The court may order that the charge is effective as against a person acquiring an interest in or right over property subject to the charge if it is satisfied that he did not rely, in connection with the acquisition, on registered particulars which were incomplete or inaccurate in a relevant respect.

(6) For the purposes of this Article an omission or inaccuracy with respect to the name of the chargee shall not be regarded as a failure to disclose the rights of the chargee..

Memorandum of charge ceasing to affect company’s property

34.  The following Article is inserted in Part XIII of the Companies Order—

Memorandum of charge ceasing to affect company’s property

410.  (1)  Where a charge of which particulars have been delivered ceases to affect the company’s property, a memorandum to that effect may be delivered to the registrar for registration.

(2) The memorandum must be in the prescribed form signed by or on behalf of both the company and the chargee.

(3) Where a memorandum is delivered to the registrar for registration and appears to him to be duly signed, he shall file it in the register, and shall note, in such form as he thinks fit, the date on which it was delivered to him.

(4) The registrar shall send to the company and any person appearing from the memorandum to be the chargee, and if the memorandum was delivered by another person interested in the charge to that person, a copy of the memorandum filed by him and of the note made by him as to the date on which it was delivered.

(5) If a duly signed memorandum is delivered in a case where the charge in fact continues to affect the company’s property, the charge is void as against—

(a)an administrator or liquidator of the company, and

(b)any person who for value acquires an interest in or right over property subject to the charge,

where the relevant event occurs after the delivery of the memorandum.

(6) Where a relevant event occurs on the same day as the memorandum is delivered, it shall be presumed to have occurred before the memorandum is delivered unless the contrary is proved..
