do special resolutions at ‘other general meeting’ require 21 or 14 days notice? According to my notes is 14 but there is a question in the mock exam that is 21.
Thanks,March 27, 2019 at 5:42 pm #510631
The notes are correct
At the time of writing those questions, the notice period WAS 21 days but that has been reduced to 14
The notes are correct, the answer to the questions should be 14
This is a task that I am currently engaged upon – updating the law material but thank you for reminding me
OK?March 28, 2019 at 3:34 pm #510712
Thanks. And is it changing for an AGM does the notice for AGMs stays on 21?
I will use this question to ask about something else. Can you let me know if I’m correct with the following:
-The appointment of new directors/auditors is ordinary business with special notice and the re-appointment of directors/auditors is just ordinary business.
-The appointment of directors/auditors that were appointment mid way through the year, is that ordinary with special notice?
– Is a reduction in the proposed dividends ordinary business?

Public company agms still require 21 days’ notice
The appointment of new directors is NOT ordinary resolution with special notice. It’s just ordinary resolution but it is special business because it’s not ordinary business (it’s not the ‘ordinary’ business of the RE-appointment of directors retiring by rotation). So the appointment of NEW directors is ordinary resolution, not special notice, but IS special business
The reappointment of directors appointed mid-way is ordinary resolution, not spcial notice, but IS special business
The reappointment of auditors appointed mid-way is ordinary resolution, IS special notice and IS special business
A reduction of the proposed dividend IS ordinary business but the increase of the proposed dividend cannot take place at that meeting and must be approved after proper notice has been given for the required adjourned meeting

Thanks, that’s better. So according to auditors, in my notes I have that#;
-Appointment of a new auditor and appointment an auditor appointed by the director in the mid-term to a casual vacancy are ordinary resolution with special notice, is that right? what about re-appointment of auditors?March 28, 2019 at 6:25 pm #510728
There are 4 ‘auditor’ resolutions that require special notice
Reappointment of mid-term auditors
Appointment of auditors different from the ones that have just completed the current year
Appointment by the members of mid-term auditors
Removal of existing auditors mid-term
So the first two of these coincide with the two that you have mentioned
