A private limited company must have an auditor when the company surpasses certain threshold values (in terms of turnover, number of employees and asset value – Auditors Activities Act sections 91-92) or if prescribed by the Articles of Association. The shareholders also have to determine the procedures for remuneration of the auditor.
The examples are given of resolutions, which can be used to remove the auditor and to elect new auditor(s).
For both, three different kind of examples are given, as the shareholders’ resolutions can be adopted:
- at the (physical) meeting of shareholders (CC sections 170-1721)
- by voting in (a format which can be reproduced in) writing (the procedural rules that are foreseen in subsections 1-4 of section 173 of CC must be followed)
- by unanimous written decision (subsections 6 and 7 of section 173 of CC)
