What is corporate governance?

Corporate governance refers to the rules, policies, and procedures within which corporations must operate.  The key is balancing the interests of all company stakeholders, including shareholders, directors, management, suppliers, customers, lenders, the government, and the wider community.

What are the main laws and regulations relating to corporate governance in Ireland?

Several key pieces of legislation underpin corporate governance in Ireland, including, but not limited to:

  • The Companies Act 2014 – coming into force in 2015, this was the largest piece of substantive statute law in Irish history.  It completely modernised company law and has been amended several times.  The most significant amendment is the Companies (Accounting) Act 2017 which came into force on 9 June 2017.  The main purpose of the Accounting Act was to transpose EU Accounting Directive 2013/34/EU into Irish law.
  • The European Union (Anti-Money Laundering: Beneficial Ownership of Corporate Entities) Regulations 2016 – this Act requires most companies to collate and maintain information on their main beneficial owner.
  • The European Union (Disclosure of Non-Financial and Diversity Information by certain large undertakings and groups) Regulations 2017 – transposed the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014/95/EU) into Irish law, introducing mandatory sustainability reporting for large companies using a “comply or explain” model.
  • Regulation (EU) 596/2014 on market abuse (Market Abuse Regulation) – introduced stringent rules concerning insider lists and insider information.

Our corporate law team are well versed and have an in-depth knowledge of these and all other laws relevant to corporate governance and directors’ duties in Ireland.  This means we can provide on point, commercially astute, pragmatic legal advice to assist you in both domestic and international corporate governance issues.
