Conveyancing Correspondent | Companies Act 71 of 2008

Dear Correspondent

As you know, when the new Companies Act 71 of 2008 became operative in 2013, the Chief Registrar issued circular 28 of 2013 to deal with various practical aspects when there are transactions relating to companies lodged for registration.

That circular has now been repealed and replaced with circular 1 of 2022.

Fortunately the circulars and content are essentially similar, except for provisions regarding the amalgamation or merger of companies. In this regard, we suggest you look at clause 4.7 thereof when this is relevant to a transaction that you are busy with.

You are welcome to contact us should you have any questions in this regard.
