All companies have to comply with certain legal, ethical and regulatory requirements. But it takes time and requires specialist expertise to ensure that your business fulfils those obligations, correctly. Although most large businesses appoint their own company secretary, most smaller enterprises prefer to outsource their company secretarial requirements. Outsourcing can save you money, mitigate risks and takes away some of the hassle of running a company.
What a company secretary does
The company’s secretary is responsible for ensuring that the company complies with its legal obligations in relation to corporate legislation and your specific business activities.
For example, under the Companies Act, statutory returns must be prepared and filed with Companies House on time. Other important internal documents (such as minutes of meetings) should be kept, meeting notices arranged and certain board procedures put in place. Failing to carry out those and other duties correctly can result in severe penalties — you could be disqualified from holding a directorship for up to 15 years and your company can be removed (‘Struck off’) from the Companies Register.
