Topic: Planning and entity choices in the light of the new Companies Act.
The Companies Act distinguishes between two types of companies, namely profit and non-profit companies, with the former comprising public, private and state-owned companies. This paper presents a discussion of the options available, and prompts company directors to re-examine where they currently are in terms of their existing company structure and possibly to make some changes for the future.
