Since The Director's Handbook was first published in 2005, there has been a major reform of UK company law in the shape of the Companies Act 2006 - reputedly the largest single piece of legislation ever. The Act, coming into force in stages up to October 2008, will affect all companies, large and small. This second edition has been fully revised to reflect the new Act, providing practical guidelines for all board directors. Illustrated with real-life examples and case studies, much of the subject matter is also of relevance to company secretaries, professional advisers and those running public sector or voluntary organisations.
Now, with far-reaching changes in directors' duties and other principles of company law, this new edition updates and explains the laws which affect the way every director does their job. It deals with all aspects of a company director's role, duties, responsibilities and liabilities within the context of the current law and good practice. Written by leading experts and fully supported by research findings, it also contains case studies (named or unnamed) from companies of varying size and sector. The Director's Handbook is the essential reference and source of advice for all new and existing directors, as well as those who aspire to this position.
