• The FRC has this week launched a project to challenge existing thinking about corporate reporting. The project will consider current reporting practices, whether the annual report and other company communications meet the information needs of all stakeholders, as well as shareholders, and how new technologies may change the way information is delivered.  The FRC is seeking participants to join a diverse advisory group to support the project. A paper consolidating the outcomes of the project will be published in the second half of 2019.
  • The Government has published draft Regulations to amend Part 28 of the Companies Act 2006 to enable the UK takeovers regime to operate outside the framework of the Takeovers Directive if there is a “no deal Brexit”.
