Kiribati: company and insolvency law reform

The Republic of Kiribati - as it became known on gaining independence from the United Kingdom forty years ago - is to reform its company and insolvency laws. Draft Bills have been published, including a Companies Bill and a Company Insolvency Bill: see, respectively, here (pdf) and here (pdf). The Bills are accompanied by a consultation paper: see here (pdf). The new Companies Bill, when enacted, will enable companies with a single shareholder to be formed and will abolish the current minimum capital requirements.
