The auditor’s term of office expires at the AGM when the auditor’s report is delivered with the FS to the members. If directors are also majority shareholders they could remove the auditor at any time by ordinary resolution. To ensure that the auditor can “have his say” and keep the minority shareholders informed of relevant matters, the auditor has the right to “speak and be heard” at the AGM even if he has been removed. This basically means that the auditor isn’t silenced by his removal. This assumed knowledge of LW-ENG is unlikely to be examined in any detail in AA since there is only one AA syllabus which takes no account of national variations in law.
