Company Secretarial Services
Outsourcing your company secretarial responsibilities lets us take care of Companies Act statutory compliance while you focus on your business.
Under the Companies Acts, a number of general duties required for statutory compliance are enforced upon the Directors and Secretary of a company. We appreciate that complying with statutory obligations is a significant and time-consuming responsibility which many business owners find onerous. Failure to comply can have serious consequences and can even result in your company being struck off.
Our limited liability company formation advice will take care of all relevant incorporation formalities and provide a company tailor made to your requirements of name and operating powers. Using our electronic company incorporation facility we are able to set up companies within 24 hours.
Registered office facilities
All UK companies are legally required to have a registered office for all official communications. We can provide registered office facilities at our office as your company’s registered office and either forward mail to you or deal with it as prior agreed.
Maintenance of statutory records
This is one of the most important administrative tasks required by the Companies Acts and cannot be done properly without prompt and careful attention to detail and a sound grasp of the legal requirements.
Statutory filing requirements
Once a year your company must deliver an annual return in the prescribed form to Companies House as part of the Companies Act requirements. This is a snapshot of information about your company, its officers and members. We can prepare this statutory document for your approval and arrange its filing with Companies House.
We also can help you with filing statutory forms at Companies House for:
- Change of company name
- Change of share capital
- Issue of new shares
- Application of striking off
- Restoration of companies
Meetings and minutes
Generally every company must hold one Annual General Meeting (AGM) in each calendar year. Your company’s first AGM must be held within 18 months of incorporation and each subsequent AGM must be held within 15 months of the last. Our company secretarial services can prepare the relevant draft Board Minutes, notice and AGM minutes.
