The table below is intended to provide guidance on the commencement timetable for the Companies Act 2006.

This table was last updated on 28 November 2008. Whilst it cannot be considered definitive, the table has been compiled based upon the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth Companies Act 2006 commencement orders. Future commencement dates may be subject to change. Certain provisions of the Act are subject to transitional provisions which are outside the scope of the table below.

The orange highlighting indicates those provisions which are already in force.
