Companies Act 2013 and Recent Amendments Masterclass

24th July 2015 – Mumbai at Hotel Hilton (Mumbai Int. Airport)



The New Companies Act 2013 which was enacted in August 2013 is considered to be a milestone in the arena corporate reforms in India as it laid down a new regime of business friendly regulations. However upon it™s implementation various sections of industry raised serious concerns over various the stringent provisions. There were demands from the private sector regarding exemption from the provisions of related-party transactions and the mandatory audit firm rotation. To increase the ease of doing business, the government had recently introduced the Companies Amendment Act 2015 with 14 amendments. The government has already notified amendments to the Companies Act, which makes it easier to do business and provides for stricter penalties for fraud cases. The amendments, which were passed by Parliament earlier this month were mainly to deal with board resolutions, utilisation of unclaimed dividends and setting-up of a firm among others as well as to bring the law in tune with the global standards.
