Synopsis: Following the FRC’s review, the Brydon Report, and the recent BEIS white paper published March 2021, UK listed companies face likely measures to enhance the quality of corporate governance, corporate reporting and internal controls under a UK SOX regime. Public companies will have to consider the increased responsibility placed on management regarding financial reporting, how they might strengthen the role of the Audit Committee, perform internal controls tests and strengthen disclosures. This seminar will cover the different options set out in the consultation, look at the extent to which each is similar and different to the US SOX regime, and what each of the options might mean for UK companies, including the implications for control frameworks, senior management and the Board. We will then discuss what pragmatic actions firms might be able to take to mitigate the risks and when they should be taken.

This seminar qualifies for 1 CPD point/s
