Small business guide

(1) If, because of:

regulations made under this Act; or

instruments issued by ASIC under this Act;

the small business guide as set out in Part 1.5 has become out of date, the regulations may set out modifications of the guide that would bring it up to date. The guide then is to be read as if it were so modified.

(2) The small business guide is divided into sections (numbered 1, 2, 3...) and the sections are divided into paragraphs (numbered 1.1, 1.2, 1.3...). For example, a reference in the guide to 3.1 is a reference to paragraph 3.1 of the guide.

This guide summarises the main rules in the Corporations Act (the Corporations Act 2001 ) that apply to proprietary companies limited by shares—the most common type of company used by small business. The guide gives a general overview of the Corporations Act as it applies to those companies and directs readers to the operative provisions in the Corporations Act. The notes in square brackets at the end of paragraphs in the guide indicate the main provisions of the Corporations Act, the regulations made under the Corporations Act, and ASIC Practice Notes that are relevant to the information in the paragraphs. Other Commonwealth, State and Territory laws also impose obligations on proprietary companies and their operators.
