Governance in focus — On the board agenda – half year 2020

Published on: 15 Jul, 2020

This half year update is a timely summary of some important areas for board focus as we enter the second half of 2020 and start to emerge from the unprecedented lockdown of our lives and our economy.  Our first articles focus on interim reporting, for those of you with December year ends, and we have provided a summary of the new Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 which puts in place a series of measures to amend insolvency and company law to support business with certain challenges from the impact of COVID-19.

There is also a reminder of two further important areas currently receiving attention:

  • Monitoring and review of the effectiveness of internal controls
  • Responding to and reporting on the impacts of climate change
