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.
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. These Directives are designed to harmonise what are often complicated rules concerning company structure and accounts as well as the issues of securities, tax and insolvency.
Gore-Browne on EU Company Law explains the impact of these Directives on company law, taxation, accounting and insolvency. It examines and monitors the implementation provisions in the UK and looks forward to forthcoming developments.
In one loose-leaf volume it contains the fully amended text of all the European Directives together with invaluable commentary on the implementation and purpose of each Directive.
Gore-Browne on EU Company Law offers a uniquely wide-ranging and authoritative approach making it the definitive reference on this increasingly important subject. It contains:
- invaluable commentary on the implementation and purpose of each Directive
- analysis on how implemented legislation has been working in practice
- practical explanations of how other EU legislation on issues such as merger regulation can also influence member state company law
- the fully amended text of the key EU Directives
- text of other EU Regulations and EU Guidance materials
