8. Remuneration Report
The German Act Implementing the Second Shareholder Rights Directive (ARUG II) transposed Directive (EU) 2017/828 of the European Parliament and of the Council of May 17, 2017 into national law. As a result, new statutory requirements for remuneration reporting were introduced for listed companies, which apply to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2021.
The “new” Remuneration Report has been removed from financial reporting to create a separate report. Significant disclosures which were previously required, in particular individualized reporting on Management Board compensation and the main features of the remuneration system, have been transferred from the (Group) Management Report to the new Remuneration Report in accordance with section 162 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG).
The remuneration system and disclosure of compensation for members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board for the fiscal year 2021 pursuant to section 162 AktG can be found in the “Remuneration Report 2021”, which is published on the corporate website at www.united-internet.de/en/investor-relations/publications/reports.html.
Disclosures on Management Board and Supervisory Board remuneration are also provided in note 42 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
