Company secretarial services

The Companies Act 2006 removed the need for a company to have a Company Secretary. However, it did not remove the company’s obligations to keep records and file information at Companies House during the life of a company, both annually and as changes are made to the company’s officers, share structure and statutory documents.

Our company secretarial services include:

  • Filing the Annual Return / Declaration of compliance
  • Maintaining Statutory Registers
  • Filing of forms on change of directors or secretary
  • Giving notice of General Meetings
  • Drafting agendas for company meetings
  • Drafting Ordinary & Special Resolutions
  • Preparing Minutes of Meetings
  • Completion of share transfer forms
  • Preparation of share certificates
  • Dividend payment administration advice
  • Carrying out company searches
