The Minister of State for Competitiveness, Stephen Timms, announced a revised timetable of the final commencement dates for the remaining provisions of the Companies Act 2006 that are not already in force. As announced on 7 November 2006, final implementation of the Act has been delayed until October 2009 (it was originally intended to be October 2008). However, certain provisions are still coming into force in October this year, including in particular the sections containing general duties of directors in respect of conflicts of interest, which will be relevant to directors of trustee companies. Other provisions of the Act likely to be of interest in relation to pension schemes include those relating to directors’ exonerations and indemnities, and the new duty to promote the success of a company. These parts of the Act are already in force, having come into effect on 1 October 2007.
