New COVID-19 exemptions for companies and administrators

New exemptions granted by the Registrar of Companies will further ease compliance obligations on companies, overseas companies, and their administrators, where they have been affected by COVID-19.

The exemptions relax requirements in regard to a range of procedural and administrative matters in the Companies Act, and apply to acts or omissions in the period from 21 March 2020 to 31 March 2021.

If a company, overseas company, or administrator decides to rely on an exemption, they must send a notice to the Registrar as soon as practicable, and not later than 31 March 2021.

To find out more about the exemptions, and what you must do to take advantage of them, please refer to our full update.
