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

This table was last updated on 26 October 2007. 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 and fourth Companies Act 2006 commencement orders.

Those commencement dates indicated with an asterix (*) 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.
