2018 - CIPC Audits On Annual Financial Statements


Not preparing your financial statements within 6 months of year-end can cost you 10% of your Revenue in penalties. 

This is the result of a recent High Court order (CIPC v Citiconnect 9503/18) that confirmed the CPC's authority to issue administrative penalties for general non-compliance to the Companies Act, 2008. 

In addition, CIPC now requires Companies to institute a criminal and legal action against directors that caused financial statements to be misleading or falsify accounting records (CIPC v Steinhoff).

The webinar will be presented by Adv Rory Voller from CIPC, and representatives from the Corporate Disclosure Regulation and Compliance Unit.
