Reforms to Jersey company law to create a new regime for demerging companies to facilitate the transfer of assets and liabilities which will support the Island’s appeal as a base for corporate restructuring and M&A activity, says Ogier partner Raulin Amy.

The Companies (Demerger) Jersey Regulations 2018 took effect on 1 September 2018 and will provide a more flexible regime including a quicker and more cost effective and flexible route to demergers than the use of schemes of arrangement and other more complex reorganisations.
