    process of review and modernisation of the Industrial and Provident Societies Act The Bill though modest in its ambition is a welcome start to the long overdue process of ensuring that groups and communities have a choice as to the corporate model they wish to operate under The co operative model provides a corporate option which promotes a set of principles and values that are unique and different from those of a company he said He welcomed in particular the provision in the Bill providing societies with access to examinership an omission from the original examinership measures which ICOS had lobbied to be corrected The measures being taken in this Bill will in part ease some administrative and regulatory burdens on co operatives in particular in respect of the current requirement to complete a Triennial Return and will also widen the scope for co operative societies to choose the accounting year end most suited to their business requirements Further updating and modernising of the now 120 year old Industrial and Provident Societies Act is an essential exercise which will contribute to Irish economic progress said ICOS President Bertie O Leary These legislative and policy changes will help to ensure that the co operative business model benefits from the same opportunities and privileges currently available to investor owned companies under company law said O Leary In regard to future legislative changes Mr O Leary noted that co operatives in Ireland currently function under legislation where there is no statutory definition of what constitutes a co operative Members are also subject to statutory financial limits in regard to how much shareholding they may invest in their co operative Smaller co operatives also cannot avail of audit exemption provisions available to certain companies and they cannot currently avail of existing examinership provisions The role of the co operative movement in Ireland is limited in comparison to that in other countries and there is a striking disparity between Ireland and other countries in the sectors where co operative businesses have flourished This needs to be addressed to facilitate the future growth and development of modern day co operative businesses We will closely examine the proposed legislation and it is to be hoped that the progress of the Bill and any related amendments will bring a spotlight to bear on the many other aspects of co operative legislation in need of modernisation he concluded Ends Seamus O Donohoe CEO ICOS 087 2867349 Issued by MKC Communications Cian Connaughton Tim Kinsella 01 703 8600 ICOS DairyDigest July 2013 Posted on 11 Jul 2013 You can download the latest ICOS DairyDigest June 2013 here In this months ICOS DairyDigest Update on CAP Brussels Bites ICOS Skillnet Update Archive Recent Posts ICOS Announces New CEO Designate ICOS EUROPEAN AFFAIRS EXECUTIVE BRUSSELS BASED Not Much Sign of Positivity for 2016 Agricultural Export Subsidies Scrapped at WTO Nairobi Deal EU Philippines Trade Deal An Opportunity for Irish Dairy Co ops Archives January 2016 December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September
