Following a lengthy review and consultation process, the Companies Act 2014 (the “Act”) was signed into law in December 2014 and applies from 1 June 2015. The Act is essentially a consolidation of Irish companies’ legislation, but does introduce a number of important innovations and changes. The Act does not, however, change the fundamental nature of any Irish company, which remains a body corporate with separate legal personality, and with a board of directors to which primary responsibility for management of the company is delegated.

Matheson’s Asset Management and Investment Funds Group produces updates and briefing notes on the novel elements of the Act and the implications for asset managers and investment funds, which may be downloaded below.

If you would like to receive hard copies of these papers, please contact the partners listed in the documents or your usual Asset Management and Investment Funds contact.
