Appointment of Auditors
The auditors in the company seek to protect the shareholders’ interests. The auditor is obliged by statute to review the managers’ accounts and notify them of the company’s actual financial status. To ensure that the company is safe and stable, the Auditor gives its independent opinion to the company’s owners or shareholders.
In compliance with the Companies Act’s provisions, after incorporation of a company in the first annual general meeting, an Auditor must be appointed by the Board of Directors. The Auditor will typically hold term till the conclusion of 6th AGM or 5 years. The appointment of an Auditor can also be made for a period of 1 year, renewable at each annual general meeting.
The appointment of First Auditor of the Company must be completed by the Board of Directors within 30 days of incorporation. In case the Board of Directors fail to appoint an Auditor, the members of the company must be informed. The members will then be required to appoint an Auditor within 90 days at an Extra Ordinary General Meeting. An Auditor so appointed will hold office until the conclusion of 1st Annual General Meeting.
