S 601BP(1A) inserted by No 117 of 2001, s 3, Sch 1 (effective 15 December 2001).
The company is liable to compensate anyone who suffers a loss because the company includes the bearer's name in the company's register of members despite the fact that:
(a) the share was not surrendered to the company; or
(b) the company failed to cancel the share.
Subject to this section, the constitution of a company registered under this Part may provide that the bearer of a bearer share in the company is taken to be a member of the company for all purposes or for specified purposes.
Note: A body must not issue bearer shares after it is registered as a company under this Part (see paragraph 254F(a)).
