Corporate Laws Made Easy
Volume - I
Module D – (Companies Ordinance) notes
Cross linked with Rules & Circulars
www.canotes.net September 6, 2012
The Examinations of ICAP are a demanding test of student’s ability to master the wide range of knowledge and skills required of the modern professionals. Subject of “Corporate Law” is one of the efforts made by ICAP in this context for enhancing student’s knowledge about detailed overview of corporate laws prevailing in Pakistan. After analyzing the trends of ICAP papers, It has been noted that approximately half of the paper of Corporate Laws at module E is being set from Module D and related rules & circulars. Unfortunately there is not even a single book available in market that serves the purpose of this portion for module E level, rather the books are compiled at module D level skipping many provisions and explanations relevant for advanced students like module E. The best and most recommended source for portion is “Companies Ordinance 1984”. The basic problems faced by the students is that the Companies Ordinance 1984 is sometimes too difficult to understand or too lengthy to digest & revise at final prep for the ICAP Exam. For these reasons there arise needs to have some comprehensive and easy notes for this subject that shall be serving both purposes Completeness of Companies Ordinance 1984 Smartness and easiness of the notes book For this purpose after the continues efforts of 2 years, We are being able to develop these notes as being quick revision summaries of Companies Ordinance 1984 covering each and every section, sub-section, clauses, sub-clauses, provisio and explanations. The notes contain all sections presented in bullets form making it easy to remember and cram the points (just like ICAP examiner wants). Most Importantly all the sections are cross referenced by relevant Rules and SECP’s circulars for practical implication being required by ICAP examiner. How To use: It is strongly recommended that first of all you should thoroughly read from the Companies Ordinance. Then you may either consult these notes as guideline for preparation of your own notes or you may select these notes for your revision, It’s totally upto you. These notes are not meant for first source and does not contain legal language. (These are for revision purposes) We have tried to ensure completeness in these notes and have made amendments on the basis of feedback from our students of corporate laws in last 3 sessions. However human error is expected in these notes, so if you find anything missing or some spell / logical mistakes in these notes please mail us about such errors by referring to the section number at our mail id “firstname.lastname@example.org“. In most cases fines & penalties are not incorporated in these notes. Moreover sub-sections that were transitional and relevant only for 6 month after coming Companies Ordinance 1984 in force are skipped. I am especially thankful to my colleagues for effective coordination in making of these notes Hope these notes could serve you. May ALLAH bless all of you with success in every exam of both lives. Please also remember us in your prayers Atif Abidi www.canotes.net September 6, 2012 For notes & other study material for ICAP subjects www.canotes.net
