SAAA seminar & workshop: CIPC update – Feb 2015


This half-day seminar has been designed to bring you up to date with the latest legislative developments relating to CIPC lodgements and company secretarial work, enabling you to ensure that the correct procedures are followed when starting and running a company. It will provide sufficient detail for those who require an update as well as an overview of the constitution of a company for those new to the subject.

This course is explained in plain language and includes practical examples and reference to all forms, providing a complete reference guide for future use.

For those of you who require more detailed help with CIPC forms, you will also have the opportunity to attend an interactive workshop in the afternoon, when presenter Elise Waldeck will take you through the forms in more depth and answer your specific queries.
