    The 11th edition of THE HONG KONG COMPANY SECRETARY’s HANDBOOK provides a comprehensive guide to company secretarial procedure in Hong Kong. It is written for practising company secretaries, corporate lawyers and students taking examinations in company law and company secretarial practice.

    4. Company Secretary and Authorized Representative
    5. Auditors

    16. Cayman Islands Companies – Exempted Companies


    As the demands for Liberian companies and Panamanian companies have dropped tremendously in the past 10 years, the chapters on these two types of companies have been deleted.

    The book features checklists of procedures encountered in practice, sample documents, and a list of prescribed forms in appendices. The step-by-step guides is an invaluable reference source for the busy company secretaries and corporate lawyers.
