Brexit

Companies, data-sf-ec-immutable="" Limited Liability Partnerships and Partnerships (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

SI 2019/Draft: This draft enactment is laid in exercise of legislative powers under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018) in preparation for Brexit. It proposes to amend primary and subordinate legislation and revoke subordinate legislation and retained direct EU legislation in the field of company law in order to address deficiencies in retained EU law which arise from the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. It also ensures that the UK’s company law framework will be able to function effectively, providing clarity and a smooth transition for business on and after exit day. It comes into force on exit day. Note that the draft enactment is identical to the draft Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships and Partnerships (Amendment etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018, which were published in October with the exception of some additional footnotes which reference the fact that certain Companies Act 2006definitions are to be amended by other regulations published in connection with the UK’s exit from the EU.
