Brexit: It’s too late to stop now

It’s too late to stop now pasa por ser arguably, como dicen ellos, uno de los mejores si no el mejor disco en directo de la historia. Grabado precisamente durante una gira en 1973, el año en que el Reino Unido entró en la (entonces) CEE tiene un final apoteósico, con Caravan y Cyprus Avenue, canción en la que casi al final, explota como un grito o un rugido la frase que da título al disco.

Parece que ha llegado el día. A falta de confirmación definitiva, aún pendientes de saber los detalles concretos, toda la letra pequeña y con el tema de la frontera en Irlanda como uno de los escollos principales a resolver o las voces que hoy mismo claman desde el sector brexiter sobre la nula posibilidad del Parlamento británico para decidir sobre el acuerdo, hago una breve referencias sobre cuestiones societarias relevantes que desarrollaré en breve. Robert Goddard ha publicado en su excelente blog  Corporate Law and Governance una detallada entrada en la que nos informa sobre el estado de las cuestiones referidas al Brexit: UK: BREXIT and the UK corporate law framework (incl. accounting, audit and takeovers)

Me parece especialmente relevante el Explanatory Memorandum to the Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships and Partnerships (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 del que destaco unas pocas ideas

Some changes are being made to the Companies Act 2006 and supporting secondary legislation because on exit day they will no longer operate effectively and therefore will require technical amendments to make them operable.
Some provisions will not be appropriate in a “no deal” scenario , and the amendments
need to be made to reflect the UK’s position outside of the single market and common framework in the area of company law.
In line with this position the amendments ensure that the UK does not provide preferential treatment to EEA companies or EEA States which would breach the
World Trade Organisation’s Most Favoured Nation rules.
2.7 The changes will ensure that the UK’s company l aw framework can continue to provide a functioning , clear system for companies and affected businesses after exit day.
What will it now do?
2.8 This instrument preserves the company law framework unchanged as far as possible and appropriate, mainly correcting those deficiencies arising from the presence of existing EEA references which cause inoperability and to reflect that the UK is no longer a member state of the EEA and so not part of the common framework in company law.
The amendments cover various processes, functions and requirements as they apply to UK and EEA businesses, including filing requirements with the Companies Registrar (Companies House).
There are also a small number of amendments to address the special treat ment given in the legislation to EEA businesses or businesses with listing on or access to the EEA  regulated markets, as these provisions will no longer be appropriate once the UK leaves the European Union.
2.9 The instrument also revokes legislation that relies on participation in EEA specific processes and systems including the Companies (Cross-Border Mergers) Regulations 2007 in relation to cross-border mergers and Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/884 regarding technical requirements for interconnection of registers, as after exit day the UK will no longer be interconnected to BRIS via the European e-Justice portal.
