Consultation paper that sought views on issues relating to corporate narrative reporting.
The consultation sought views on Government plans to make narrative reporting simpler, clearer and more focussed. It included proposals to change company narrative reports to make the framework clearer for companies and easier for investors to locate the information they need. The disclosure requirements that we place on companies to streamline and remove inconsistencies are also being reviewed.
The consultation also included a number of proposals to make the reporting of executive remuneration clearer and more relevant to investors. In addition to this, the government has published a separate discussion paper seeking views on a range of issues relating to executive remuneration.
On 18 October the government published draft regulations to improve the quality of narrative reporting. See The future of narrative reporting: a new structure for narrative reporting in the UK (PDF, 275 Kb) that sets out the draft regulations, the final stage impact assessment (PDF, 153 Kb) and a Regulatory Policy Committee Opinion (PDF, 68 Kb) .The Government would welcome your views on these regulations by 15 November. Please send any comments to: email@example.com.
