Another version of the Form 6 is live
22 Jul 2016
We now know who is going to be running the country for the next three years, and for those of you who took our advice to start preparing new Form 6’s from 1 July while we waited to see who would win the election, you can scrap that.
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has released another version of the Form 6 which commences 1 August and replaces the one that we sent last time (which is valid for one whole month).
It appears there is no transitional period for the commencement of this new Form 6, so come 1 August any Form 6’s you enter into must be on the latest form, which can be accessed here.
We have engaged with ARAMA to make submissions to the OFT to allow a formal transitional period for future releases to ease the otherwise draconian consequences of not using the right version.
