By popular demand the book now includes the whole of Part VI of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 with detailed commentary on the prospectus provisions. The commentary to section 894 has been updated to refer to the likely changes resulting from the proposed amendments to CA 2006, Part 25 which will introduce a UK wide system of registration for company charges. Part 15 and the relevant commentary has been significantly amended to cover the increased exemptions from audit for small companies. This one-stop resource provides guidance on the interpretation of the law and the impact of changes made by the Companies Act 2006 by reference to case law, Hansard and Committee Reports, as well as including copies of all substantive secondary material. Usability is enhanced for quick and easy research with the inclusion of derivation and destination tables easing navigation around the 2006 regime, and the book is organised according to the topics covered in the Parts of the 2006 Act, with paragraph numbers referencing the Parts and sections of the Act, designed with the user in mind. The third edition continutes to be a much-needed fresh commentary on the companies legislation. It provides a single, convenient and portable volume and is the complete companion to company law for all corporate, M&A, and insolvency lawyers.
