Housing and Regeneration Act 2008

Section 129 - Companies exempt from audit

303.This section applies in relation to a registered provider which is a registered company, other than a registered charity, which is exempt from the audit requirements of the Companies Act 2006 by virtue of section 477 of that Act, because it is a small company. Registered providers in this category must cause an accountant’s report to be prepared, in accordance with section 130 and made to the company’s members in respect of the company’s individual accounts for any financial year in which the company takes advantage of its exemption from audit. ‘Individual accounts’ has the same meaning as in section 396 of the Companies Act 2006.

Impact Assessments

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
