Would the cost of instructing a solicitor to oversee the process be 'reasonable' to recover from the company?

Perhaps, if the circumstances justified it.

But if the company doesn't agree, are you really going to spend more money going to court to try to get the company ordered to pay those fees?

The meeting never got off the ground. Back to square one. Is there a distinction between the address of a director and a shareholder even if the two roles are occupied by the same person? The company regs state notices be sent to the addresses of the shareholders. There is no mention of the address of the directors. It is possible sending a notice to the business address of the company secretary on behalf of the directors rather than to the addresses of the shareholders is where I have tripped up?

If a person has an address, that is his or her address, even if he has two or more hats.

Have you looked at the company's most recent annual return?

Have you asked to inspect the register of shareholders?

The details of the shareholders are missing from the last return but the directors' service address has been recorded as the same as the business which is not their actual address.

In what capacity is the person being served? If as a director, then use the address given for service of matters relating to the directorship. If as a shareholder, then use the address shown on the register of shareholders. If in doubt, use both.

Based on your reply, I would be serving any shareholder in their capacity as a director at their business address or that of the company secretary for the request of a meeting. In turn, I would be serving the shareholders (including the directors) at their actual addresses and not the business address for the notice of a meeting. The only problem is the shareholders list on the return is blank and I do not have the actual addresses of the directors.

The companies house records will show service addresses for the directors.

The company regulations include a provision that no persons other than shareholders and their representatives be sent notices. Directors are excluded. Does this mean I have to serve on the address of the shareholder rather than the director? Do the regs over rule S310 of the Companies Act?
