In the face of increasing pressure for companies and organisations in South Africa to pull their socks up in order to match their corporate governance practices with the King Code and Report on Governance in South Africa “King III” and South African Revenue Service “SARS” registration matters, it has become a lot more difficult for any company to skirt the responsibilities of maintaining good corporate governance.
The new Companies Act stipulates that any and all listed companies are legally required to appoint a company secretary to manage this side of business, which involves business administration and all statutory obligations or responsibilities.
Qualified company secretaries are not a dime a dozen, and, most companies are not able to afford the services of anyone this highly specialised, which leaves a huge gap for many companies, especially small to medium entities.
It’s a catch 22 situation; by law you need to appoint a company secretary but in reality your budget may not allow for it, even if you are able to find a highly experienced, qualified company secretary, which can lead to more than just a few pitfalls that could be expensive at a later stage, should your company in any way fall short of these legal requirements.
