A company's constitution is at the heart of its operations, and the Company Constitution offers a succinct, practical reference to it. This book gives information on company constitutions in the new statutory system under the Companies Act 2016. It is divided into six chapters. It clarifies the company constitution for professionals working in Malaysian firms, both before and after the Companies Act 2016 went into effect.
The book aids in the transition from the old to the new statutory framework that governs businesses. It discusses how the old Table A (Companies Act 1965) provisions affect the new statutory environment and recommends provisions that can be changed, modified, or adopted while remaining compliant with the new law's requirements. Table A items with identical or equivalent Replaceable Rules in the new Act are given helpful discussion. A comparison of Replaceable Rules and Table A entries that are same or similar adds value to the text.
This book is a useful tool for corporate people and professionals, such as company secretaries, directors, accountants, legal advisers, and bankers, as it provides a practical grasp of both old and modern company constitutions. It is also appropriate for law students as well as non-legal students who are pursuing corporate law courses. In a word, it will be an invaluable resource for everyone who is interested in or works with businesses.
