    The Caribbean Corporate Governance Institute presents

    RAISING THE CURTAIN ON BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP OF COMPANIES: Part 2

    Update on the new law on Company compliance

    On August 29th, we explored this new legislation which makes it mandatory for companies to submit new documents to the Companies Registry or face penalties which include fines and jail time.

    We advised that every company and every shareholder should consider whether they are affected by this new law which came into force on May 29, 2019 and introduced the new filing requirements. While the deadline of June 30, 2019 had passed, we had noted the difficulty in compliance because the accompanying prescribed forms had not yet been released by Government. However, these have now been completed.

    The Caribbean Corporate Governance Institute invites you to attend our Breakfast Seminar to discuss the above.

    Date: Saturday 26th October 2019

    Time: 7:00am to 10:30am

    Venue: Hyatt Regency, Trinidad

     All companies (with limited exceptions*) and their directors, company secretaries and other officers as well as shareholders are affected by this new law and should attend.

     *Public companies with shares listed on the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange are exempted from these requirements as are Companies listed on a regulated market.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Master Class: Corporate Governance and the Role of Audit & The Audit Committee

    As the role of the audit committee continues to evolve, it becomes increasingly important for its members to remain up to date and aware of changes to their responsibilities. The audit committee is a central pillar of effective corporate governance and is in the best position to offer several key roles. These include effective oversight of the performance, independence and objectivity of the auditor and the quality of the audit.

    The audit committee’s role should also focus on the following:

    • Future requirements and any changes to its policies and procedures to increase its own effectiveness.
    • Choose the audit firm it believes is most appropriate for the company.
    • Be equipped with sufficient knowledge and insight about the audit and the auditor.

    Join us for a Masterclass on Corporate Governance and the Role of Audit and Audit Committees. This one-day workshop will be held on Wednesday 20th November 2019 from 8:30am to 4:00pm at the Trinidad Hilton and Conference Centre.

    Target attendees

    All directors (whether or not on the audit committee), senior managers, advisers to Boards, Auditors (so they understand the expectation of the Audit Committee) and anyone who serves at a level in a company which provides direct support to the Board.

    Master Class: Ethics & Governance

    Corporations must adhere to some morally decent standards while its governance processes remain as ethical as possible while still making a profit. However, there are those who still believe that companies have a duty to their shareholders to maximize the profit. Thus, ethical standards are less important than legal standards, which explains why corporations will often "cut corners" when trying to meet expensive legal standards. So the debate has been on.

    Should businesses focus their efforts on the corporation’s profits, or demonstrate ethical responsibility to the community and environment in which it operates? How will you influence the choice of the ethical path for your company? Join our Keynote Speaker, Alison Dillon Kibirige as she delves into this important topic.

    Target attendees

    All directors, senior managers, advisers to Boards, Auditors and anyone who serve at a level in a company which provides direct support to the Board, or aspires to serve on a board.
