The departure of the UK from the European Union has had a significant impact on company law, both for companies incorporated in the UK and for non-UK groups that include UK entities.
Now almost 18 months on from the end of the Transition Period, at the end of 2020, we will take a look at what the amended company law landscape means for UK-incorporated companies as they prepare their first post-Brexit financial statements. We’ll also consider the implications for Irish companies who are part of a group that contains UK entities.
In this webinar, Claire Thomson will cover the following topics:
- Changes to the definition of eligibility, and the potential opportunities for micro, small and medium companies
- Implications of the revised legislation for groups and consolidations
- Considerations for Irish-incorporated entities that are part of a group containing UK entities
- Other changes – cross-border mergers, Societas Europea, EU freedom of establishment and the impact on political donations
