An impact assessment is created for the government's planned relaxation of audit requirements for the financial statements of small companies. The proposals involve aligning audit with accounting exemptions for small companies, exempting subsidiaries from mandatory audit where the subsidiary fulfils the Article 57 and additional criteria, and exempting dormant subsidiaries from account preparation and filing requirements. Cost-benefit analyses of this and other, more and less radical, options are included, along with the opinions of government and other interested organisations.
