Companies Act 1985

Does anyone know if there is a full transcript of the Companies Act 1985 on the internet anywhere?

Many thanks for any answers received!

UK legislation online
If you are looking for legislation online (and are prepared to pay a subscription fee) then you can find it on Butterworths' legislation direct ( This contains the full, amended text (updated daily) of UK Statutes, UK SIs, Scottish Statutes, Scottish SIs, and Church of England Measures.

I sense a psychic moment here - I was just about to pose exactly the same question when I saw yours listed. Sorry I don't know the answer though - the HMSO site has all legislation from 1988 onwards, but I haven't found the 1985 Act yet.

Wouldn't bother
My understanding is that only legislation since 1987 is on the HMSO site. For CA85, I frankly wouldn't bother with the internet unless it's only a very small amount of text you are after. Even if it was available, the print time and consumables cost would far outweigh the cost of the paper volume itself.
