Tips for your 2018 annual report

Although the disclosure changes required by the 2018 legislation and the new 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code do not need to be seen in annual reports until early 2020, there is a huge weight of anticipation on companies to include early disclosure where possible in order to achieve the transparency and engagement sought in the new Code, and thereby improve trust in business.

In a helpful checklist format, this publication walks directors through some of the new matters to consider in this year’s annual report to assist in decision making regarding key disclosures. We include valuable insights arising from recent investor feedback regarding annual reporting.
