The best-selling <>ICSA Company Secretary’s Handbook is the authoritative guide to company secretarial practice. It covers both the detailed law and regulation governing companies, and all practical aspects of company secretarial procedure, in a single accessible volume.

Coverage is comprehensive, from incorporation to winding up, detailing the procedures associated with boards of directors, company meetings, reporting, shares, and share registration. The Handbook also contains chapters on listed company compliance, corporate governance, company investigations, takeovers and mergers, and insolvency.

Detailed commentary is accompanied by more than 80 precedents (which are also available as a download), appendices, and a glossary of key terms and a directory of key company secretarial resources.

This new edition has been updated throughout to cover the latest developments in company law and regulation, including:

  • the introduction of the Register of Persons of Significant Control (PSC register) from April 2016 and associated guidance
  • recent changes to the UK Corporate Governance Code
  • changes in auditing practice to comply with the EU Audit Regulation and Directive (ARD)
  • the updated Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Handbook
  • the implementation of the EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) due in July 2016.
The ICSA Company Secretary’s Handbook will remain the essential volume for all UK company secretaries and those fulfilling company secretarial functions. It provides in-depth commentary and analysis on all related procedural matters.
