Director's Responsibilities

A Director of a business has an obligation to ensure that a company operates at the highest possible standards, complies with the relevant legislation governing corporations and attends to basic “housekeeping” tasks appropriately.
 
The penalties that can be applied to Directors who fail to meet these obligations are considerable. If you are a Director of a company, the team at Coleman Greig can help you understand your role and obligations – and minimise your personal and corporate risk of liability. 
 
We work with you and your business to ensure compliance with the legislation regarding your business practices and to ensure your business adequately communicates the rights and responsibilities of directors and maintains relevant policies and procedures to safeguard individuals.
 
We can help you with:
  • Due diligence to identify issues 
  • Corporate governance policy 
  • Risk assessment 
  • Compliance manuals 
  • Compliance training 
  • Legal representation in Court 
  • Advice on asset protection.
