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

This table was last updated on 27 February 2008. Whilst it cannot be considered definitive, the table has been compiled based upon the Companies Act 2006 Table of Commencement Dates produced by the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and the first, second, third, fourth and fifth Companies Act 2006 commencement orders. Future commencement dates may be subject to change.

Those commencement dates indicated with an asterisk (*) are taken from the commencement orders rather than the guidance commencement timetable produced by BERR. The orange highlighting indicates those provisions which are already in force.
