Company Secretary's Annual Reporting Checklist 2022/23

For over 15 years, UK-incorporated, premium listed main market companies have relied on us to help them meet their annual reporting requirements. Company secretarial and governance professionals at over 100 main market listed companies have used our comprehensive Annual Reporting Checklist to help them navigate annual reporting law, regulation and best practice, all delivered in a user-friendly format.

The 2022/23 edition is now available. Key changes and issues covered this year, include: 

  • Focus areas for reporting in light of the deteriorating global economy and geopolitical tensions, including the consideration of evolving risks and their impact on a company's business and its resilience.
  • Requirement to take account of revised TCFD implementing guidance, with regulatory expectations and observations on how to enhance the quality of climate-related disclosures.
  • Opportunities to meet the FCA's new board and senior management diversity reporting requirements on a voluntary basis.
  • FRC's areas of focus to improve governance reporting, with particular emphasis on actions, outcomes and impacts, and the quality of explanations of non-compliance with the UK Corporate Governance Code.
  • Opportunities to improve remuneration reporting, including the impact of global economic uncertainty on policy and outcomes.
  • New 'note tagging' requirements for the XHTML Annual Report and opportunities to prepare a better structured report.
  • Considerations for the 2023 AGM, including the relaxation of pre-emption guidance and likely areas of investor scrutiny.


  • SUMMARISES: It summarises the reporting rules with which you must comply this year and highlights the areas on which investors are likely to focus their attention. 
  • REASSURES: It provides assurance to reporting teams and ultimately company boards that all relevant reporting requirements have been addressed. 
  • ENHANCES QUALITY: It draws attention to additional best practice reports and guidance that will help enhance the quality of a listed company’s narrative reporting.
