Company Law Handbook 2016 addresses the key features and principles of modern company law from a practitioner's viewpoint in a practical, clear and user-friendly style.

Rather than taking an encyclopaedic approach, Company Law Handbook 2016 takes a more practical approach by charting the company lifecycle from pre-incorporation, through incorporation and culminates with the winding up process, addressing, in detail, the essential requirements in establishing a company, including the steps, procedures and documents that are required during the existence of the corporation.

Company Law Handbook 2016 has been revised and updated to take account of the following developments:

  • Deregulation Act 2015;
  • Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015;
  • The Legislative Reform (Limited Partnerships) Order 2015;
  • Attribution of liability;
  • The concept of “establishment” under EU Regulation 1346/2000 for winding up proceedings;
  • De facto directors;
  • The liability of the Registrar of Companies at Companies House;
  • Reduction of share capital;
  • Financing purchase of own shares;
  • Accounts rules.
A significant feature of the handbook is the consideration of new topics including legal aspects of corporate social responsibilities, human rights, corporate bribery and corporate manslaughter and topics that have a direct bearing on the legal and practical aspects of company law.

The handbook also highlights significant cases and principal judgments that impact on UK company law. Checklists guide you through legislative provisions and their application to the day-to-day running of a business throughout its lifecycle, and key definitions at the end of each chapter make it accessible by simplifying the legal concepts involved.
