On 13 December 2007, the Minister for Competitiveness made a further announcement concerning the implementation timetable of the Companies Act 2006.

This announcement follows the earlier announcement made by the Minister on 7 November when he indicated that certain provisions of the Act previously timetabled for commencement on 1 October 2008 would be postponed to 1 October 2009, subject to certain areas where the Government indicated that it would consult with key stakeholders regarding the implementation timetable.

Following such consultation, the Government has published what it is hoped will be the final version of the implementation timetable and has clarified which provisions of the Act are intended to come into force on 1 October 2008 and 1 October 2009 respectively.
