SECTION 201MEFFECTIVENESS OF ACTS BY DIRECTORS
Effectiveness of acts]
An act done by a director is effective even if their appointment, or the continuance of their appointment, is invalid because the company or director did not comply with the company's constitution (if any) or any provision of this Act.
Ramifications not addressed]
Subsection (1) does not deal with the question whether an effective act by a director:
(a) binds the company in its dealings with other people; or
(b) makes the company liable to another person.
Note: The kinds of acts that this section validates are those that are only legally effective if the person doing them is a director (for example, calling a meeting of the company's members or signing a document to be lodged with ASIC or minutes of a meeting). Sections
contain rules about the assumptions people are entitled to make when dealing with a company and its officers.
