Banking and Finance eBulletin - December 2015

01 Dec 2015

The November 2015 edition of our Banking & Finance eBulletin is now available.

This edition covers a variety of issues relevant to asset based lenders, banks and other financial institutions as well as their customers.

The Small Business Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 is being brought into force gradually. We look at developments particularly relevant to asset based lenders (invalidating bans on assignments) and banks (credit information and finance platforms).

It is also mentioned in our insolvency update.We also include a more general update on property matters and a report on an important new case on penalty clauses in contracts.

Finally we look at the thorny issue of housing associates and their status given the recent reclassification by the ONS of English housing associations as public sector bodies.
