The Companies Act 2014 imposed a new requirement on directors to include a Directors’ Compliance Statement in the annual Directors’ Report.

This requirement applies for accounting periods commencing on or after 1 June 2015, and is applicable in relation to all Irish tax law obligations relevant to a fund, in addition to certain legal obligations prescribed by Companies Act 2014.
If you require assistance understanding the impact of Directors' Compliance
Statement obligations on your business, or to discuss how the ongoing
obligations could be managed, please get in touch with Gareth Bryan.
