Companies Act 2006: A Guide for Private Companies

February 28, 2008

One of the main aims of the Companies Act 2006 was to improve the way small businesses are regulated. Accordingly, the new Act reforms the law relating to private companies in significant ways, and this text aims to guide the reader through the changes. It provides, in a clear, accessible manner, an overview of the relevant obligations and procedures set out by the 2006 Act, as well as tables charting changes between the 1985 Act and the 2006 Act.

Who is it for? Practitioners, company secretaries and directors of private companies will find it useful, but it offers students little that existing texts do not already provide.

Presentation: It is clear and easy for non-specialists to understand.

Would you recommend it? Only for those involved in the running of a private company.
