Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations amend the Companies (Summary Financial Statement) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996 (S.R. 1996 No. 179) following the introduction by the Directors' Remuneration Report Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 (S.R. 2005 No. 56) of a requirement that certain companies should produce a directors' remuneration report. Certain of those companies which are permitted under Article 259 of the Companies (Northern Ireland) Order 1986 to produce a Summary Financial Statement will fall within the category of companies required to produce a directors' remuneration report.

These Regulations expand the disclosure required in a Summary Financial Statement to include either the whole or a summary of certain information concerning directors' remuneration contained in the notes to the accounts and in the directors' remuneration report.

The relevant information is the aggregate amount of directors' emoluments, a statement of the company’s policy on directors' remuneration for the next following financial year and the performance graph.

The aggregate of directors' emoluments will be contained in the notes to the company’s accounts whereas the other two items will be contained in the directors' remuneration report.

The requirements will apply to companies and groups, whether or not they are banking or insurance companies and groups.
