This chapter begins with a discussion of the statutory framework of company law. Registered companies in the UK are governed by the Companies Act 2006 (CA 2006) and its predecessors. Commencement of the legislation took place piecemeal between 6 April 2007 and 1 October 2009, and is now fully in force (with a few minor exceptions). Despite its length, many Parts of the Act rely on secondary legislation to supplement the statutory framework. The remainder of the chapter covers the European framework of company law.
