Company Secretarial Services


Since the Companies Act 2006, unless there is an express requirement in your articles of association, private limited companies no longer need to appoint a company secretary – so why do I need one?

The simple answer is that even though it’s no longer a legal requirement to appoint a company secretary, the tasks they carry out still need to be done. In the absence of a company secretary the directors must take on the role and responsibilities. So that means even more workload for you.

As a result many directors wisely choose to outsource the role, reducing the administrative workload and burden of corporate governance, thus ensuring their compliance is easily maintained
