Company Secretarial Services

We advise on all aspects of company secretarial matters including the legalities of start up, choice of legal entity for your business, the actual formation and ongoing maintenance and development of your company. Keeping up-to-date with changes in this area of the law can be an onerous and time consuming task with complex issues surrounding compliance and corporate governance.

Our company secretarial services offer a cost effective and practical solution for clients by removing much of the administrative burden faced by organisations as part of the legal requirements set out in the Companies Act 2006. Our team are committed to easing this burden, providing you with the time and resources you require to concentrate on running your business.

We offer a full range of services including:

  • the formation of companies, LLPs and charitable organisations
  • acting as company secretary or registrar
  • dealing with appointment and resignation of directors
  • issuing or transferring of shares
  • filing of statutory returns and forms at Companies House
  • preparation of board meeting and shareholder minutes and resolutions
  • upkeep of statutory registers, strike off and dissolution
  • responding to annual audit enquiry letters

We also advise on all aspects of company law including directors’ duties, shareholders’ rights, company disclosure and reporting requirements, preparing or advising on shareholder agreements, drafting bespoke articles of association, and advising on options available to you for resolving disputes. We also regularly assist with providing notary public services to assist clients who operate internationally where documents are required to be legalised (sometimes referred to as apostilled) by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in London.

For further information on easing the burden of company secretarial services contact one of our experienced corporate team to arrange an appointment.
