Companies Tribunal


The strategic mandate of the Companies Tribunal derives from the legislation and regulations under which it has been established by the Companies Act, No. 71 of 2008, as amended ('the Act'), as well as the policy framework of Government

The Tribunal's mandate is adjudicated in relation to any application that may be made to it in terms of the Act and make any order provided for in the Act in respect of such an application; assist in the resolution of disputes as contemplated in part C of Chapter 7 of the Act; and perform any other function assigned to it by or in terms of the Act, or any law mentioned in Schedule 4. The Tribunal's establishment and operations is expected to reduce compliance regulatory costs, provide redress and quick/easy access to stakeholders, particularly small businesses, and provide mediation where required or deemed necessary.

The intention of the Companies Act is, among others, to facilitate the ease of doing business in South Africa in relation to the formalisation of corporate entities, and the enablement of an environment supportive of the efficient growth of well-governed, credible businesses.
