Product Information


By the end of this event the attendee should:  

    • Understand the purpose of the Companies Act, 2008;
    • Understand the CIPC’s regulatory role.
    • Be aware of key sections in the Companies Act that directly effect the day to day duties of bookkeepers;
    • Understand how these key sections affect the bookkeeper/accountant’s work on a practical day to day basis; and
    • Be aware of practical tips that can be applied on a daily basis, as certain transactions occur.


The Companies Act, 2008 provides for the incorporation, registration, organization, management, and capitalisation of companies. It also defines the relationships between companies and their shareholders and directors/members. 

It is vital that everyone who is in the accounting field understands and can practically apply the Act’s provisions in their daily duties. This is especially true for bookkeepers who work with and are responsible for the integrity of the financial records every single day.

The purpose of this webinar is not to discuss all the legal provisions of the Act but to highlight the parts of the Act that affect the bookkeeper/accountant’s day-to-day roles and to give practical tips on documentation to keep as part of the bookkeeping process.

Join us to understand the importance of the Companies Act in the bookkeeping role as well as recent important amendments to the Act.
