UK: Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill - Parts 7 and 8 - provisional implementation plan

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has published a provisional implementation plan for Part 7 ("Companies: transparency") and Part 8 ("Company Filing Requirements") of the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: see here (pdf). This explains, amongst other things, that the prohibition (with exceptions) on corporate directors will come into force in October 2015 and that companies will no longer be able to issue bearer shares two months after the Bill has received Royal assent. The Bill is currently before the House of Lords and its Committee stage will resume today.
