Incorporation on the Web.

Companies House could soon allow electronic incorporation of companies if proposals put forward by the government go ahead. Under the plans, which are part of an effort to drag government into the Internet age, companies will communicate with their members and with Companies House electronically. Shareholders will be able to agree to access annual reports and accounts on a website rather than being sent copies through the post. They will also be able to appoint proxies by e-mail and give them voting instructions.
