Company Secretarial

Company Secretarial

As a company owner or director, you are legally obliged to ensure your documentation is up to date with HMRC. Historically, this work has been done by an employed company secretary.

Since 2008, private limited companies do not legally need a company secretary unless it is in the company’s articles of association.

Without a company secretary, the owner or directors must ensure the company information is up to date. This can be time consuming and an administrative burden for directors.

Our company secretarial team can remove this burden by managing all duties of an accounting secretarial matter, including:

Maintaining statutory registers

This includes maintaining a register of members, directors, charges, and persons with significant control.

Shareholder administration and communication

A company must ensure that their information held by Companies House is always up to date. This includes filing annual accounts, dividend documentation, a confirmation statement, and updating any changes to registered information.

Outsourcing these services reduces the risk of information not being updated fast enough and in turn reduces the chance of being fined, prosecuted, or facing disqualifications.

By working as an extension to your company, we can work seamlessly with your directors to ensure this information is correct and compliant. Our efficient, timely, and accurate work will allow you to rest assured that everything is under control. You will also be able to concentrate on company performance and growth rather than wasting precious time on administrative work.
