06/06/2018 - Intra-group loans and Distributions

This note (and its sister note on guarantees and distributions) have been prompted by a paper produced by the Institute of Chartered Accounts in England and Wales and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland containing Guidance on Realised and Distributed Profits under the Companies Act 2006 (Tech 02/17 BL). They are concerned with the following questions: 1. If an English company, which is a member of a group of companies, gives a guarantee to a creditor of its parent company or of a fellow subsidiary, can that guarantee constitute a distribution of assets to its members? 2. If an English company, which is a member of a group of companies, makes an on-demand loan to its parent company or to a fellow subsidiary, can that loan constitute a distribution of assets to its members? The two notes have been prepared by the CLLS and the Law Society.

08/10/2014 - Joint response of the Financial Law Committee and the Insolvency Law Committee of the CLLS and the Banking Reform Working Group of the Law Society of England & Wales to the HMT consultation paper on the transposition of the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive.

The consultation considered some of the key issues to be addressed in the transposition of the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive, and sought views from industry and others potentially affected by the changes. The submission responded in detail to the consultation questions. It also urged the Government, once the current round of legislation is complete, to address as a priority the production of consolidated legislation in the fields of financial services and bank regulation, or, at least, the prioritisation of production of official consolidated texts for the statutes and key SIs

03/09/2014 - Summary of July 2014 stakeholder meeting on the Financial Law Committee’s Secured Transactions Reform Discussion Paper 2: Fixed and Floating Charges on Insolvency

The Financial Law Committee recently produced a note which summarised the main issues discussed at a meeting held at Norton Rose Fulbright LLP on 15 July to discuss fixed and floating charges on insolvency. The meeting was held further to the Committee’s second discussion paper on secured transaction reform. As the summary stated, there were three key conclusions from the meeting: - “There is a problem with the existing law. It needs to be reformed." - “The first thing to do is to decide whether (and, if so, to what extent) there needs to be a levy on secured creditors to fund administrations.” - “If such a levy is required, it needs to be decided how to impose it in a way which is both fair and certain.“

The consultation sought stakeholders’ views on how the UK should implement the “Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment”, and the “Protocol on Matters Specific to Aircraft Equipment” to achieve the greatest economic benefit for the UK. The submission stated inter alia that the secondary legislation (which is being proposed to implement the Cape Town Convention into the laws of the UK) could be used to define clearly the boundary between the sphere of application of the Convention and existing law and, in so doing, it could help mitigate the Blue Sky problem.
