About this Publication:

Company secretaries are at the heart of the company, providing the enterprise and its directors with the right legal, compliance, accounting and governance support and advice at the right time. Company secretaries also serve as the link between the board and the rest of the company, its shareholders and the public. 

In recognition of the dynamic and strategic role played by company secretaries today, Juta is proud to launch Company Secretarial Practice, which replaces its well-loved predecessor, South African Business Administration, in order to provide a new, up-to-date and definitive reference work for all company secretaries.

This regularly updated manual takes the key functions expected of the company secretary and highlights the legal framework in which the company secretary operates, suggesting practical procedures to achieve compliance. In this way Company Secretarial Practice will help company secretaries to meet the exacting demands of their job and fill their role as necessitated by legislation and the King Reports.
