Despite the legislation change, a Company Secretary role may still be vital for your business.
From 6th April 2008 private companies are no longer required to have a company secretary, even though many of the tasks undertaken by a company secretary are still required to remain compliant. In addition, companies with only one director will often require a second signature on legal documentation (for example when you open a bank account). Therefore many companies are still opting to appoint a Company Secretary.
There are always company legislation changes taking place and this makes it very easy for small to medium-sized companies to miss changes in deadlines and potentially incur heavy fines and non-compliance.
The Company Secretary services offered by Incisive Accounting take the worry of potential non-compliance off your shoulders as we will manage your statutory affairs for you. This service is ideal for contractors, consultants or professionals who work alone but want the cover of being a limited company. It is also valuable for people who live outside Britain and need a signatory within the UK.
Our Company Secretary services include:
Incisive Accounting are able to provide a registered office address for new or existing companies. All companies must have a registered office and whilst many businesses use their trading address numerous others prefer to have confidential legal documentation sent to an alternative address to the general administrative office.
All correspondence received at the registered office is treated confidentially and forwarded to the company where necessary.
