Welcome news for Irish businesses this month as the interim period for the Companies (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Covid-19) Act 2020 has been extended to 31 December 2021.
This 2020 Act makes temporary amendments to the Companies Act 2014 and the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1893 to address issues arising from COVID-19.
The main features of the Act can be broadly summarised as follows:
The Government recently approved drafting of The Companies (Small Company Administrative Rescue Process and Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2021. The Bill will amend the Companies Act 2014 and includes amendments to make permanent provision for virtual meetings.
