Section 172 Statement
Section 172 of the Companies Act 2006 sets out a number of general duties that directors owe to a company. These includes a general duty requiring directors to act in a way in which they consider, in good faith, will promote the success of the company for the benefit of shareholders as a whole.
New statutory reporting requirements mean that certain companies within the Ideal Carehomes Group (public and private UK companies, including subsidiary companies, which qualify as “large companies” under the Companies Act 2006) need to include a statement in the Strategic Report within their Annual Report to help shareholders better understand and explain how directors have had regard to the matters set out in section 172(1).
These section 172(1) statements for qualifying companies within the Ideal Carehomes Group are available below:
