SEMINAR INVITATION: THE NEW COMPANIES LAW

The new Companies Law will enter into effect on 1 August 2018. It will change a lot of things for the better, but a change for the worse is the new punitive regime of fines for every minute fault (although we are pleased to report that DICA’s recently published list of penalties appears to be much more reasonable than the law itself and may have reduced the problem). We will hold a seminar on Saturday, 21 July 2018 with an emphasis on compliance, the new filing system and how to re-register existing companies and branches. The seminar will take place on a Saturday as it is intended to be a pilot for an LL.M. programme that we plan to start in the second half of this year.

Participants will be presented with our corporate compliance bible (English and Myanmar).
