According to this act, it is mandatory for a limited company to conduct an external audit of its accounts. This requirement ensures transparency and accountability in the financial reporting of companies, and helps to protect the interests of stakeholders such as shareholders, creditors, and employees. Therefore, the Companies Act 2013 makes it necessary for a limited company to undergo an external audit.

    • A.

      including a disclaimer clause in their service contracts

    • B.

      Seeking professional help

    • C.

      Keeping themselves fully informed about company affairs

    • D.

      Ensuring that regular management accounts are prepared by the company

    Correct Answer
    A. including a disclaimer clause in their service contracts
    Explanation
    Including a disclaimer clause in their service contracts will not help directors to protect themselves from non-compliance with their obligations and responsibilities. A disclaimer clause is a statement that attempts to limit or exclude liability for certain actions or omissions. However, directors cannot simply absolve themselves of their legal duties and responsibilities through a disclaimer clause in their contracts. Directors are still required to fulfill their obligations and responsibilities, and they can be held accountable for non-compliance regardless of any disclaimers in their contracts. Therefore, including a disclaimer clause will not provide protection against non-compliance.
