About the seminar:

The Companies Bill was passed in Legislative Council on 12 July 2012. This marks an important milestone in the exercise to modernise Hong Kong’s business law and maintain Hong Kong’s position as an international financial centre. Many requirements in the Bill would have a bearing on accounting professionals, especially the controversial section 399 which imposes a criminal sanction on auditors. In the upcoming seminar organised by ARC, you will be introduced to the details of section 399, the expanded application of simplified financial reporting and some major revisions to companies law by Mr. Paul Chan Mo-po.
