Presenters : Edith Wilkins

The Companies Act, 2008 is the piece of legislation that forms the backbone of company regulation in South Africa.

This Act also defines the relationships between companies and their shareholders and directors/members. 

The purpose of this webinar is not to discuss all the legal provisions of the Act but to highlight the parts of the Act that affect accountants in their day to day roles.
