Programme outline

On 18 March, the Government (BEIS) published its long-awaited consultation on reforms aimed at “restoring trust in audit and corporate governance”, as a response to the Kingman, Brydon and CMA reviews. The consultation sets out a broad programme of reform for auditors, companies, directors, audit committees, investors, other stakeholders and the regulator, including a proposal that the UK should adopt a strengthened internal controls regime - similar to the US Sarbanes-Oxley regime, which would require directors to attest to the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting.

Jonathan will set out how this proposal will likely impact UK businesses, the challenges and complexities that will be faced, and the key questions that UK businesses should be asking themselves now.

Learning outcomes

  • An understanding of the BEIS consultation and how it will likely impact UK businesses.
  • What businesses will need to do to meet future legislative requirements, and in what timeframe.
  • The “no regrets” activities which you should be undertaking now.
