Consultation: Company Law/Ongoing Directives

 This project is the third step in the simplification of accounting rules for SMEs and other companies in the scope of the "Accounting Directives".

This was preceded by the fast-track adoption in 2008 of a first series of amendments simplifying disclosure requirements for medium-sized companies and clarifying the obligation to draw up consolidated account. In a second step, the European Commission has decided to introduce a Member State option to create a new "micro" entity category that will be exempted from the accounting requirements under the Fourth Directive. A proposal to this end will be tabled at the same time as the launch of this stakeholder consultation.

The current consultation addresses issues relating to the modernization and simplification of the Accounting Directives. Positive effects of the review will include a reduction of burden mainly for small enterprises ("think small first") as well as qualitative improvements for all enterprises in the scope of the Directives. An additional objective is to increase the clarity of the text for lawmakers and users in general.

Following an analysis of the comments received to the consultation paper a legislative proposal will be presented before the end of 2009.
