Welcome to the Spring edition of Retail Compass. We present our guide to the key upcoming legal and policy changes affecting Retail and our thoughts on the need-to-know issues – as retailers look forward to a post-pandemic landscape.
We cover furlough fraud risk, retail credit rating downgrades, tighter regulations around pre-pack administrations and much more.
As well as our horizon scanning pieces and other developments, we have guest contributions from:
- Lisa Byfield-Green, Head of Insights at Retail Week, on what retailers can expect in a post pandemic retail landscape
- Andrew Cregan, Head of Finance Policy at the British Retail Consortium, calls for action on abusive credit card charges
- David Kaufman and Staci Jennifer Riordan from leading US firm Nixon Peabody LLP on tips to successfully enter the US market
We continue to include key statistics and links to our legislation tracker and list all of the UK Government consultations and enquiries relevant to Retail.
We hope you find this publication useful - please do not hesitate to contact Jeremy or Karen, of your usual RPC contact, if you have any comments or queries.
