Speaking at the MIA Audit Committee Conference 2017

I have been invited to speak at the MIA Audit Committee Conference 2017 on 5 April 2017. The conference will be held at the Connexion Conference & Event Centre. The registration form can be downloaded over here.

I will be speaking at the panel session on the Companies Act 2016 and its impact on the audit committee’s responsibilities. We will be covering the new management requirements, the utilisation of share premium and the capital redemption reserve and the new business review section. It is a good combination of speakers drawn from across the various industries. I am very much looking forward to this.

    Hi, may i know is there a difference between capital reduction and return of capital? or is it just different terms, same process/impact? Thanks.

      There is a slight difference. A capital reduction can sometimes not result in a return of capital to the shareholders. For example, a reduction of capital in order to cancel accumulated losses.

        in other words, if there is a return of capital, it can be by means of capital reduction or through dividend distribution, is that right?
