Company law has recently undergone major reform aimed at simplifying and modernising current law. The Companies Bill 2012 was signed into law by the President on 23 December 2014. The new Companies Act incorporates 17 previous Companies Acts and related company law provisions into a single comprehensive legislative code. Although many of the provisions are a restatement of the current law, there are also a number of new provisions. It is important that clients are aware of these legislative developments and when they become operative so as to ensure compliance within their organisation.
