Corporate governance - Introductory and procedural guidance

Directors and company secretaries have a number of responsibilities under the Corporations Act 2001. In addition to the responsibilities covered in more detail elsewhere in the Corporate Governance section of our website, there are many procedural obligations that directors and company secretaries must be aware of.

This page lists various information sheets which provide concise guidance on a specific process or compliance issue or an overview of detailed obligations in relation to running a company.
