star this property answer text <p>If the UK leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement, UK registered auditors will be treated largely as third country auditors in the EEA. Similarly, UK companies will be treated largely as third country companies for accounting and audit purposes. EEA auditors and EEA companies in the UK will also be treated as third country auditors and third country companies in the UK under changes that will be made effective in part through amendments to UK legislation. However, the UK Government has put in place a framework that will allow some continuing market access for EEA auditors to the UK for a limited period in order to provide continuity for businesses in the period following the UK’s exit.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s technical notice on accounting and audit if there is no Brexit deal sets out the implications of No Deal for businesses operating across the EU/UK border. Almost all the legislative changes referenced in this guidance have been made via:</p><p>- the Statutory Auditors and Third Country Auditors (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019;</p><p>- the Accounts and Reports (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019;</p><p>- the International Accounting Standards and European Public Limited-Liability Company (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>When a company enters administration, the administrator must, usually within three months, provide a confidential report to the Insolvency Service on the conduct of the directors of the company. The Insolvency Service will assess the information received and will collect information from third parties including other government departments, to determine whether or not a full investigation is required. This may ultimately lead to director disqualification proceedings or other enforcement action.</p><p>As the administration only occurred last week, the administrator’s report is not expected yet.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the critical role that post offices play in communities and for small businesses across the UK. This is why the Government committed to safeguard the post office network and protect existing rural services. The overall number of post offices across the UK remains at its most stable in decades with over 11,500 branches thanks to significant Government investment of over £2 billion since 2010.</p><p> </p><p>While the Government sets the strategic direction for the Post Office, it allows the company the commercial freedom to deliver this strategy as an independent business. The income generated for specific services is an operational matter for the Post Office Limited. I have therefore asked Nick Read, Chief Executive of Post Office Limited, to write to the hon Member on this matter. A copy of his reply will be placed in the libraries of the House.</p> more like this
