Research and Markets: The Company Secretary's Desktop Guide Available Now
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fmdcff/the_company) has announced the addition of the "The Company Secretary's Desktop Guide" book to their offering.
The Companies Act 2006 is the most significant Act to be passed in recent years.
Even before the new Act, Directors faced a minefield of obligations and liabilities - these have now become more numerous and complex. It has become compulsory for all Directors to acknowledge the changes made to the law that significantly affect the liabilities of company secretaries.
In this new edition Roger Mason provides accessible, expert guidance for professionals on every aspect of the company secretary's role, clearly explaining the significance of the new provisions of the Act and ending each chapter with a valuable summary of those changes.
Its detailed Contents section is designed to help you treat this guide as a menu, providing easy access to advice and solutions to particular problems. Packed with checklists, hints and tips, techniques and warnings, this guide is indispensable. It ends with a set of valuable Appendices including a list of Companies House forms and the new Table A and Table C.
