The Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships and Partnerships (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument is being made in order to address deficiencies in retained EU law in relation to the Companies Act 2006 and supporting secondary legislation that arise from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (this instrument does not directly address deficiencies in the area of accounting and audit which are being amended in separate instruments). It will ensure 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.
