At the same time, with need for political pluralism, universal need for change of property form - privatization of state capital in enterprises is rising. This produces brand new owners of existing enterprises companies, as well as new forms of capital joining, investing and governing, which, like a shadow, follow private property. From the aforementioned novelties complex processes and alternative modes of governing companies are rising especially with different models and mechanisms of work control of authorized persons and organs, as well as different possibilities of reporting. What directly depends on principles and models of corporate governance is the following: business result of the company, real value of nominal share of shareholders, i.e. effecting of interests of investors and other interested participants. Corporate governance is s synonym for large business system, i.e. the company with intention to grow big. Large business systems have special, unavoidable role and importance for economy and society of every state. Therefore, system of corporate governance and supervision becomes important precondition for successfulness of companies and indirectly one of pillars of economical and social development.
