Welcome to the latest edition of Agenda.

Companies Act 2014


The deadline for converting private limited companies to DACs is 31 August 2016 and to LTDs is 30 November 2016. To avoid delays in converting, it is important to hold the necessary board / general meetings and arrange for the filings with the CRO well in advance of the above deadlines.

For updates on the new Act, please access the Knowledge and Guidance tab on our website Read more


On 23 June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union. At this stage it is difficult to assess the impact this decision will have as it depends on the terms of the UK’s exit. We are reviewing the potential impacts of Brexit on Irish companies and will provide an update in the next edition of Agenda.
