Hello, thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this.
The shareholders the company with voting rights of 5% or more can require the directors of the company to call a general meeting at any time.
This right is guaranteed by section 303 of the companies act 2006.
If the directors fail or refuse to call a meeting following at least 5% of the voting shareholders demanding it, they make all their own meeting. Instead, and obtain reimbursement of the costs of that directly from the company.
The general meeting must be called by the directors within 21 days of the appropriate shareholders demanding it.
Section 305 sets out the specific right on the part of the shareholders to call their own meeting if the directors fail to comply with their obligation to call the meeting when requested.
