Companies House procedures for a cross-border merger
Further Information


Introduction Cross Border Mergers


This is a guide only and should be read with the relevant legislation, the Companies (Cross-Border Mergers) Regulations 2007.

This guidance only refers to the procedures that need to be completed in relation to the Registrar of Companies at Companies House. It does not cover other requirements as set out in the relevant legislation (which includes contact with the court and other internal obligations that a company will need to carry out). We recommend seeking advice from a solicitor when considering a cross-border merger.

For more detailed guidance on the cross-border merger regulations, please see the BIS guidance note which can be found at www.berr.gov.uk/bbf/eu-company-law/directives/page19528.html.
