Work dress codes appear, to this writer at least, to be somewhat more relaxed today than was the case 20 years ago, or even as recently as five years ago, when Swiss financial services giant UBS was widely ridiculed for having issued to staff a dress code 44 pages long. This more relaxed approach may be down to a variety of factors, such as a greater tolerance of personal expression, the blurring of boundaries between home and work in these days of “agile working”, and/or the example set by high profile hoodie/T-shirt-wearing dot.com billionaires.
And yet, work dress codes have been much in the news this year.
Recent board moves have reignited the discussion in relation to the composition of luxury fashion brand boards. In June of this year, Alexander Wang, Creative Director of the eponymous label he launched in 2005, added the roles of Chief Executive and Chairman to his list of responsibilities. Meanwhile, just a few weeks later, Burberry moved in the opposite direction, when it announced that Christopher Bailey, its Chief Executive Officer, was to hand over control of the company’s day-to-day management as part of a board overhaul prompted by criticism from investors. Luxury goods veteran Marco Gobbetti is to take over from Bailey as Chief Executive, whilst Bailey will become President, alongside his existing role of Chief Creative Officer.
The Federal tax service (hereinafter – the “FNS”) in its letter1 dated 04 July 2016 analyzed court cases related to the activities of registering bodies (hereinafter – the “Review”). This time FNS focused on the issues of proper introduction of various records pertaining to legal entities’ corporate status in the state register of legal entities (hereinafter – the “EGRUL”).
Key issues the FNS draws attention, confirming its position with conclusions in the case law, can be summarized as follows:
- For the purposes of making amendments to EGRUL with regards to withdrawal of a company member from the company, it is improper to indicate in the application (under form Р14001) “entering record on new participant” as a reason of entering changes. Entering record on termination of former participant is required instead, as well as filling in, among others, page “З” featuring data on the amount of shares, belonging to the company, in the company’s charter capital.
