Part Two: Consequential Amendments

591.Part 2 of the Schedule amends CA 2006 for consistency with the provisions to abolish share warrants to bearer.

592.Paragraph 23 amends section 122 of CA 2006 to reflect the fact that once section 84 is in force no more share warrants will be able to be issued.

593.Paragraph 24 amends section 617 of CA2006 to allow for a company to alter its share capital on the basis of the requirements in this Schedule. Paragraph 25 amends section 652 of CA 2006 to ensure a member of the company is not liable in respect of any share to any call or contribution exceeding the nominal amount notified to the Registrar in a statement of capital resulting from a reduction of capital on the basis of the requirements in this Schedule.

594.Paragraph 26 amends CA 2006 to remove section 780 which currently requires a company to provide a share certificate on surrender of a bearer share warrant, since this will no longer be needed when bearer share warrants are abolished.

595.Paragraphs 275 and 28 amend CA 2006 to provide for restoration of a company through the administrative route or by the court if it had bearer share warrants in issue at the time of strike-off or dissolution. Any bearer share warrants and the shares specified in them will be cancelled on restoration. If, as a result, the company has no share capital it must make an allotment of shares.
