The Companies Bill 2012
The much awaited Companies Bill 2012 completed its Committee Stage on 6 November 2013.
More than 150 amendments had been proposed and, of those, the 143 proposed by the Minister for Jobs Enterprise and Innovation (the “Minister) were accepted. Unusually, a large number of further amendments are expected to be proposed by the Minister at the next stage, which is the Report Stage, and is due to take place in early 2014.
The new Companies Act is now expected to commence in early 2015… we will keep you informed of further developments.
