DESCRIPTION

Lately in the news we have been hearing about tender irregularities and allegations of corruption involving government PPE purchases. The occurrence of such bad practices has been increasing at an alarming rate and not only in government circles but in the private sector as well! 

Looking at the bright side, there are more and more discussions and loud calls around the subject of corporate governance and transparency. This webinar looks at governance, transparency, accounting, assurance, and how these subjects are linked and all come together to assist in controlling graft and other undesirable business activities. 

This webinar forms part of our Back to Basics Companies Act Series consisting of 8 webinars, but can be viewed independently. The Series is designed for the accountant who is just starting out, as well as the practitioner that wants a refresher course on the Companies Act and how it has settled down into the South African corporate landscape.  To attend all 8 webinars join the series here.
