LET’S GET THE CIPC COMPLIANCE FORM STRAIGHT
I am not one for writing blogs or getting entangled in posts making use of social media. I’ve written blogs where I have been incensed about what is going on around me which mostly relates to service delivery!
This would be a post about the situation that has arisen in company law and the CIPC compliance form which is an attempt to improve company law compliance which we all know is at an all-time low!
Our competitors are going around saying that the new CIPC compliance form has been put on hold or is going to be delayed. This is used because they heard it verbally from someone at the CIPC and is used as an excuse because they can’t deliver what we have. This is rumour and can’t be relied upon!
In our system Sky Sec, we produce the document required to be signed by the client with the information to be posted on the CIPC website. Check out our videos!
I have news for everyone it actually doesn’t matter whether the compliance form is going to be delayed or is going ahead because compliance in regard to what has been specified by the CIPC is in fact required! It was supposed to be carried out by all companies from that time the new Companies Act was implemented in 2011. By saying we can’t do the compliance form therefore we are not going to help our clients with the necessary compliance is in fact ridiculous!
What’s even more critical is that every Company Secretarial Practitioner needs to produce an engagement or mandate letter which of course our system Sky Sec does if you are going to be involved in helping your clients comply and of course our integrated digital signature gets authority from your clients.
So, the fact that a competitor cannot produce something to help their Secretarial Practitioner clients help their secretarial clients do the CIPC compliance does not mean that companies don’t have to do it. We all know that the law is the law and this is a wakeup call so let’s embrace it. The sections on the compliance form need to be done from now on and filed if necessary. Let’s do the necessary compliance and let’s carry out the laws of the country as we are supposed to!
If any Company Secretarial Practitioner or company wishes to find out more about our system that will help you with this compliance please log onto the following link for a short video or give me a call or connect with me and watch for Fridays repeat webinar.
