Many thanks for this Francois and the link (not read as yet). The most common 'errors' I come across are when misinformation is intentionally filed. This usually relates to notice of a director having resigned when he had not and nor had there been any properly constituted meeting of shareholders (with Special Notice) to remove him. I have also come across notice of shareholding changes when no transfers had been made. The problem, as you explain, is that CH merely records what they are told and do not proactively establish the truth. If a director has not in fact resigned/been removed then he remains a director notwithstanding the notice at CH. You have covered this briefly at the end with s.1112 CA2006. My experience of acting to resolve inter-shareholder/director disputes where false information has been posted at CH is that they will not act on a rectification request without either the agreement of the other parties or an Order of court. I think this only encourages such a situation, especially in smaller companies, since many are not prepared/able to spend monies in court action. Further in the case of false resignation/removal, if the other shareholders hold the majority , a court Order is often a pyrrhic victory since before the hearing they could simply serve proper notice and remove the director correctly at a general meeting. Having said that I sometimes find the delay if they choose to remove lawfully can help the negotiation since within that period the director can begin to exercise his powers (eg requiring the company's accountant to provide information that has been denied him). I think there are to steps I would like to see CH take to reduce this problem:- 1. Flag the risk of a s1112 prosecution much more prominently. I think with the ease in which one can file notices online, many people file false information unaware that they have committed an offence. 2. Rather than tell people to obtain a court Order , they should set up a dispute resolution process in which to invite the parties to participate.
