The Companies Bill 2015 is Released

For those interested, the Companies Bill 2015 has finally been released. It clocks in at 628 pages (solely for the English version), 610 clauses, and 13 Schedules.

Do note that the English version will be authoritative text of the Bill (see P.U.(B) 403/2015 under the National Language Acts 1963/67).

From my quick reading, the Companies Bill 2015 does differ from the 2013 consultation copy issued by the Companies Commission. There have been improvements and tweaks made to several of the sections, while possibly leaving some lacunas.

Will cover more of the areas in future posts. I have to soon say goodbye to oft-used sections  like sections 176, 181, 181A, and 218 under the Companies Act 1965 and then memorise new sections.
