Session 2 Thursday August 2, 1 – 3 PM
Regulatory compliance & corporate governance
This session explores the interaction between the law and corporate governance and looks at simplifying the governance needs. The key legal issues will be explored and consideration given to how corporate governance can work for your business. Areas and processes that can assist you and your business to keep the regulators from your door will be discussed and explained.
Session 3 Thursday August 16, 1 – 3 PM
Australian Financial Reporting Requirements
What financial reporting rules must you follow? In Australia, the combination of Commonwealth and State laws, accounting standards, regulated entities and a patchwork of exceptions and tiered structures makes this a potentially confusing question. This session shows you how to ask the key questions that unlock the answers. It includes the latest developments on the Reduced Disclosure Requirements, company reporting and special purpose financial statements.
Session 4 Thursday August 30, 1 – 3 PM
Fair Work and Corporate Governance
The Fair Work Act commenced on 1 January 2010, but many are still struggling to come to terms with the way the Act has changed minimum conditions of employment. With regulators moving from education to enforcement, it is absolutely vital that employers ensure they are meeting their obligations to their employees. This session will step participants through all aspects of the safety net entitlements created by the Fair Work Act, as well as the requirements for keeping employee records.
Session 5 Thursday September 13, 1 – 3 PM
