In our first issue of Corporate Reporter for 2014 (here) we outlined a number of regulatory reforms in the corporate and general commercial area which were making their way through the legislative process. As we have reported in subsequent issues, progress has been made on a number of these reforms. However, there were still three key Bills outstanding on Parliament’s last sitting day before the House rose for the general election. These Bills officially lapsed on 14 August when the House was dissolved, but they can be reinstated by the new House when Parliament resumes in November.

The following table sets out a summary of the three outstanding Bills and the current status of key legislative reforms progressed this year.
