Companies Act 1985 Query

Hello all, I wanted to find out whether the introduction of the Companies Act 2006 should replace the following statutory paragraph on non-trading accounts filed with companies house.  The paragraph reads as follows:- “The directors consider that the company is entitled to exemption from the requirement to have an audit under the provisions of section 249A(1) of the Companies Act 1985. No notice has been deposited under section 249B(2) of the Companies Act 1985. Shareholders holding 10% or more of the nominal value of the company’s issued share capital have not issued a notice requiring an audit. The directors acknowledge their responsibilities for ensuring that the company keeps accounting records which comply with section 221 of the Companies Act 1985, and for preparing accounts which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company as at 30th June 2007 in accordance with the requirements of section 226, and which otherwise comply with the requirements of the Act relating to the accounts so far as applicable to the company.” Is this still relevant or do we still carry on using references to the Companies Act 1985? Many thanks, […]
