Company secretarial

With a Chartered Company Secretary and Governance Professional heading the team, we look after clients’ ongoing compliance requirements by maintaining their statutory records and their entries on the public register at Companies House.

Good governance is vital throughout the corporate lifecycle

At the most basic level, getting the forms to Companies House on time means that the business avoids unnecessary penalties. The added value comes when you want to raise equity finance, get a loan, or sell the business, the statutory books together with the public record at Companies House will be vital information for anyone conducting due diligence on your business.

We provide support throughout the business lifecycle from incorporation, through annual compliance to exceptional events such as group restructures, flotations and dissolution. Examples of the routine tasks we do for clients include:

  • The annual confirmation statement which has to be filed at Companies House
  • Board meeting minutes documenting the decisions made by directors
  • Dividend documentation, including vouchers for tax
  • Appointing and removing directors
  • Share issues, transfers and reductions, including dealing with the Stamps Office
  • Providing a registered office address and maintaining the corporate registers for inspection

Backed by reliable systems so we don’t miss a deadline, our Company Secretarial and Governance team has experience of serving a wide range of clients from the quoted PLC to the small owner managed company. We look also after Limited Liability Partnerships, Limited Partnerships and Charities.

In the charity sector, we provide additional governance support, including tailored governance manuals which are of particular value to the trustees and Charity Commission filings.
