The beginning of a new era of statutory compliance

LEGAL INFORMATION SERVICES (PTY) LTD (LIS)

The 2008 Companies Act promised the beginning of a new era of statutory compliance and Directors’ responsibility of ensuring adherence to good corporate governance practices and this is indeed the case. The King III Code and now the King IV Code stands in conjunction with the Companies Act and clearly cautions Directors on awareness of laws, rules and standards applicable to them.
