Essentials of Corporate Law & Governance in Singapore, 2nd Edition

Your Practical Handbook to Corporate Law & Governance in Singapore
 
The first and only source of practical procedures to corporate law and corporate governance, covering up to and including the most recent changes since 2018.
 
A high standard of corporate governance is essential to continue building Singapore’s reputation as a regional and global hub for businesses. Over the last two decades, Singapore companies have greatly progressed in their corporate governance practices. However, businesses now operate in an increasingly complex environment, with disruptive changes challenging traditional business models. It is of paramount importance for Singapore companies to steadily uplift and improve their own corporate governance practices, not only in letter but also in spirit, in order to stay ahead in this business environment. In the local regulatory landscape, the Singapore Code of Corporate Governance has undergone a major revision in August 2018 and some corporate governance disclosures and practices are now mandatory. With the enactment of new legislation including the Insolvency, Restructuring and Dissolution Act 2018 and Variable Capital Companies Act 2018 and the passing of amendment acts, the Companies Act of 1967 has also been amended many times. Finally, Singapore courts have issued landmark judgements in the area of company law, such as Independent State of Papua New Guinea v PNG Sustainable Development Program Ltd [2020] 2 SLR 200 and Miao Weiguo v Tendcare Medical Group Holdings Pte Ltd [2021] SCGA 116.
 
Essentials of Corporate Law and Governance in Singapore brings together and highlights the key issues in company law and governance in Singapore today. Written by an author with vast experience in this area, the book discusses the applicable law and practice with clarity and keen regard for practical considerations, supported by the latest case law of the Singapore courts. Besides making extensive references to the relevant current legislation and Code of Corporate Governance 2018, the discussion also considers the latest Singapore Financial Reporting Standards and the applicable provisions from the SGX Mainboard and catalist Rulebooks.
