Pakistan: Companies Ordinance promulgated by the President

The Companies Bill 2016, drafts of which were published for consultation earlier this year, has become law.  The new Companies Ordinance - a copy of which is available here (pdf) - was promulgated by the President several days ago (in the exercise of a power provided by the Constitution). A short statement concerning the promulgation, from the Securities and Exchange Commission, is available here (pdf) and a short overview of the new Ordinance, from the Ministry of Finance, is available here.


I am grateful to Waseem Ahmad Khan, Additional Registrar of Companies, SECP, Islamabad, for bringing me news of the President's promulgation of the new Ordinance.
