the new Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015

24 June 2015

How this will impact your company

The new Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act is very broad in its scope – it aims to reduce the administrative burden on companies, whilst also enhancing transparency and increasing trust in the UK as a place to do business.  All companies will be impacted by at least some of the changes as they alter the legal requirements placed on them, including what they must file going forward at Companies House. The biggest change will be the requirement that companies investigate and obtain information on persons with significant control over them. 

Take a look at our briefing paper to find out what these changes mean for you.

Please note that the implementation timetable has been subsequently revised - here are the details of the current timetable.

In addition, since we prepared our initial briefing paper the Government has published a further consultation document setting out more details on how the register of persons exercising significant control over companies will operate in practice. We have put together a supplementary briefing paper outlining the key details.

FOIA and data protection: the difficult balancing exercise for public authorities when a request is made for third party personal data

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘FOIA’) allows members of the public to request information from public bodies. As guidance issued by the Information Commissioner explains, the main principle behind FOIA is that people have a right to know about the activities of public authorities, unless there is a good reason for them not to.
