The director, the company secretary and the manager are the officers of a limited liability company. The purpose of this course is to establish and examine the responsibilities of each officer under the Companies Act, the Interpretation Act, the Constitution, the Company Service Providers Act, and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. The regulatory and compliance aspects of each role will be considered. During the course we will also look at these responsibilities from a practical perspective and how to comply with the applicable requirements. Recent developments effecting the responsibilities of company officers will be presented and discussed. The course will also involve a deep dive into the personal liability of the officers of a limited liability company under the Companies Act.
