The Irish Companies Act 2014 has now been signed by the President and is expected to be commenced in June 2015.
The good news is that there are no nasty last minute surprises. The bad news is that you will need to devote some time in the first half of 2015 to assessing its practical implications for your organisation. However, you can enjoy the festive season in the knowledge that we have done a lot of the work for you.
You can read some of the detail on the key reforms in the Act in our Companies Act Client Guide and if that is not enough, you can also read our answers to the most frequently asked questions from our international clients as to the impact of the Act on their Irish operations.
