Ghana: The Companies Act 2019

It is now over sixty years since Professor Gower was appointed to chair a commission on company law reform in Ghana, the product of which was the Companies Act 1963. A new company law framework, to replace the 1963 Act, was placed before Parliament last year: the Companies Bill 2018. Media reports suggest that the Bill has been passed and the new company law framework - the Companies Act 2019 - will become law on receiving the President's assent: see here. The Parliament website has yet to be updated with further information.

Update (6 August 2019) - The President's assent has been given: see here.
