Changes to the scope of the annual accounts exemption as a result of Brexit

As a result of Brexit, the United Kingdom (hereinafter the ‘’UK’’) is no longer bound by EU law as of 1 January 2021. In a previous news item, we already noted that this may have consequences for legal entities incorporated in the UK that perform their activities entirely in the Netherlands. Brexit also has direct consequences for Dutch legal entities. One of these consequences is that Dutch group companies belonging to a group headed by a UK legal entity may no longer be able to apply the annual accounts exemption of section 2:403 of the Dutch Civil Code (DCC).
