This ebook is a concise explanation in plain English of a number of key topics of Australian company law, selected for their practical relevance to the everyday governance of private companies. The "proprietary limited" company structure is overwhelmingly the preferred business structure used in Australia, but the subject of company law is opaque to most of the people who are involved in the management of private companies, and is left to the experts. Unfortunately, the law imposes onerous duties on company officers, and ignorance of the law is no excuse. This guide, written by an experienced lawyer, seeks to provide Australian business people and general readers with a quick understanding of many of the basic issues relevant to company administration. The e-book comes with a Creative Commons license and can be used in commercial settings such as training sessions, and is attractively priced. It is written in plain English with icon illustrations to make what might otherwise might be a heavy topic engaging and user-friendly.
