Lafarge acquisition notice delay leads to new audit rules

Zimbabwe: Companies registered in Zimbabwe are now subject to a new penalty framework under which they will face a US$14,200 fine for failure to publish audited full-year accounts within 90 days of the end of the year. Additional fines will accrue at a rate of US$100/day for the subsequent 30 days or less, whereupon the regulator will take further action. Business Weekly News has reported that the Securities and Exchange Commission of Zimbabwe (SecZim) enacted the new rules after Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe failed to fully disclose its acquisition by Fossil Mines in December 2022.
