Irish Company Secretary's Handbook

Irish Company Secretary's Handbook cover


Irish Company Secretary's Handbook examines the company secretarial requirements contained in the Companies Acts and relevant EU regulations. The book includes useful chapters on all areas of company secretarial practice, including annual returns, directors' and auditors' responsibilities as well as statutory disclosure requirements. It gives a clear explanation of the many day-to-day functions of a company secretary along with a large number of up-to-date precedents, practical checklists, step-by-step instructions and best practice guidelines.

This practical title covers the wide range of developments that have recently affected company secretarial practice and procedure, most notably Companies Act 2014, the changes to the Criminal Justice legislation, and the introduction of GDPR.

For ease of use a downloadable version of all precedents that appear in the book is provided.

This is a 'must have' book for company secretaries and assistant company secretaries in company formation businesses, law firms and accountancy practices as well as for law students. Solicitors in private practice, in-house solicitors and accountants will also find this a useful resource.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Irish Company and Commercial Law online service.
