Are you ready to implement the Shareholder Rights Directive II in your remuneration policy and annual report?

Belgium Tax Dbriefs

The Shareholder Rights Directive has been transposed into the Belgian company code by the law of 28 April 2020, which has to be read in conjunction with the Corporate Governance Code 2020. This Directive aims to strengthen shareholder position and involve them in a company’s remuneration policy (among other obligations) to encourage long-term planning and minimise risk-taking.

This means that in the spring of 2021, the majority of quoted companies will need to present an adapted policy to shareholders for their vote, and their 2020 annual report will need to comply with the new rules. This topic should therefore be given a prominent place on the Remuneration Committees’ agenda during the next few months.

With that in mind, we are pleased to invite you to a webinar in which we will discuss how to apply these new rules in practice.
