...The Bribery Act 2010
The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1 July 2011. This act makes it an offence for any UK citizen or resident to pay or receive a bribe in order to give or to gain a commercial advantage.
The recent changes to the law on directors’ duties was well publicized. The Companies Act 2006 included a ‘statutory statement’ of duties which, by October 2008, became the basis of the law.
The new Act sets out seven duties which are designed to set the old law in stone.
