In Brief Simpler Execution of Deeds for Companies


Companies can now execute documents under deed without having to have the document signed by two officers (directors or the company secretary) or affixing the company’s seal.
Now, provided it is allowed under the company’s articles of association, all that is required is the signature of a single director, provided the signature is properly witnessed.
