Gore-Browne on EU Company Law

£690.00

'Gore-Browne does not stop at just reciting the law as it currently stands, but it goes further in that it supplies a truly interesting critique of the current state of the law with good referencing to other commentary. I strongly recommend it to all professionals who practice in company law and whose work has a cross-border element to it.'

​Stefan Ramel LLB, LLM (Cantab), Barrister, Guildhall Chambers, Bristol

Setting up, running and dissolving a business is never easy wherever the jurisdiction, but for EU Member States it is complicated by the effects of EU Directives on their own law and practice. EU Directives governing the regulation of companies have had profound effects on how businesses operate throughout Europe. In the UK, for example, the European Company (SE), money laundering legislation and developments in cross-border insolvency have all resulted from EU initiatives.

Gore-Browne on EU Company Law explains the impact of EU Directives and Regulations on company law, taxation, accounting and insolvency. Analytical in approach, it examines and monitors the implementation provisions in the UK, looks at forthcoming developments and Directives, analyses key cases from the European Court of Justice and discusses new EU business entities that are now available and are increasingly being used by Member States including the UK.

In one looseleaf volume it contains the fully amended text of all the European Directives together with invaluable commentary on the implementation and purpose of each Directive.

 Benefits of the service include:
  • Available in both print and online
  • Extensive contents such as corporate forms, market abuse, transparency, take-overs, mergers, corporate governance, employee issues, cross-border mergers and insolvency.
  • Analysis of how corporate rescue in the UK and Member States are affected by the UNCITRAL Model Law and the 2000 EC Regulation.
  • Authoritative commentary on the implementation and purpose of each Directive and how it has been working in practice.
  • Practical explanations of how EU legislation and cases can influence corporate activity across Member States
  • Reproduces the amended text of the key EU Directives and other EU Regulations and EU guidance materials.
  • A comprehensive source of cases from the European Court of Justice which must be followed by UK courts
  • Expanded coverage of European Tax Law, including detailed analysis of the key European Court rulings on Member States' direct taxes
Gore-Browne on EU Company Law is an invaluable guide for solicitors, barristers and accountants, and anybody practising in or researching company and insolvency law.

'Gore-Browne on EU Company law is a very well written looseleaf work which covers a substantial amount of material on international company law. It very helpfully reproduces at the end of each chapter some of the key primary materials which are the subject of analysis in the relevant chapter. This is a looseleaf which does not stop at just reciting the law as it currently stands, but it goes further in that it supplies a truly interesting critique of the current state of the law with good referencing to other commentary. Being a looseleaf, it is completely up to date with the latest domestic and international case law on company law. However, it also includes some very useful commentary on ongoing changes to existing legislation. I strongly recommend it to all professionals who practice in company law and whose work has a cross-border element to it.'

Update 62 is no exception and Chapters 2, 2C, 12, 16 and 20 all include short sections on how Brexit (in its current stage of discussion) will affect the chapters.

Chapter 2B has been amended to include some recent pertinent cases such as, in the Supreme Court, Trustees of the Olympic Airlines Pension Scheme, discussing how under the Insolvency Regulation there is a need for a place of business and a fixed place of business activity with external parties. In the European Court, H v HK looks at derivative actions and insolvency and the Dutch case of Natural Person v Bepro BV on
the jurisdiction aspects in relation to a partnership.

Chapter 8 includes a new section on the European mutual society, which offers life and non-life insurance services, social schemes and small-value services of a social nature.

Chapter 9 has some minor updating to reflect the current position of the European Company Statute.

Taxation has been updated comprehensively to include many new cases. In Chapter 18 these include, among others, Belgische Staat v Comm VA Wereldhave Belgium on the applicability of the Parent/Subsidiary Directive on dividends paid by a Belgian subsidiary to its parent companies in the Netherlands. Société Euro Park Service, venant aux droits et obligations de la société Cairnbulg Nanteuil v Ministre des finances et des comptes publics looks at Art 11(1) of the Merger Directive and the conditions imposed for its applicability.
