The new Companies Act 2013 has introduced a variety of changes to the manner in which companies are started and managed. These changes have impacted the way critical business transactions are undertaken, the role of professionals such as CAs, company secretaries and lawyers and the manner in which promoters, businessmen and entrepreneurs run their companies.
Currently available information, such as the videos on the ICSI website, articles on the internet and textbooks on the subject either deal with issues in a very theoretical manner, without reference to how Companies Act has a relevance to essential business transactions and everyday corporate governance. Similarly, a section-wise study of the provisions of the new Companies Act or referring to a comparison chart can be technical, not intuitive and difficult to grasp. A practitioner needs to quickly and systematically identify relevant aspects and incorporate them into his practice or adapt it to a new role - an operational perspective has to be undertaken to explain how a professional's practice needs to adapt.
This is a short course explaining the most relevant changes introduced by the Companies Act, 2013 at a practical level. The idea is to enable lawyers, accountants (CAs, cost accountants, etc.), finance professionals and company secretaries to understand how these changes different areas of their practice, to them to add value to clients through advisory services, performing compliance and filings, advising clients through strategic and regulatory issues, contract negotiation and drafting. In some cases (such as CSR compliance), they will even be in a position to add new specializations to their portfolio of client services. Practical takeaways ensure that learners have ready access to key documents, which they can use as base drafts for their consultancy services.
