Companies Act 2006

Section 1114: Application of provisions about documents and delivery

1425.This section, which replaces section 715A of the 1985 Act, provides that “document” means information recorded in any form, and that “delivering” a document includes forwarding, lodging, registering, producing or submitting it, or giving a notice. It also provides that requirements relating to documents also apply (unless otherwise provided for) to information passed to the registrar in some other way. This caters for the possibility that information may not be in documentary form, for example when it is sent via a link to a website.
