Company Secretarial

People set up new companies for one reason: they see a commercial opportunity. That is why we believe that company secretarial work should be handled by a team that understands your business, its deadlines and priorities. A team that is committed to helping your company fulfil its commercial potential.

As a corporate officer you have certain legal obligations and duties. Every year the company must submit annual returns, approve and file accounts and formally document changes in the business.

The penalties for missing deadlines and non-compliance can be severe. But why should you have to worry about these matters, when you have more important concerns? Because our company secretaries work closely with our accounting and consultancy teams, we know what documentation has to be filed and when.

You can then focus on your business, secure in the knowledge that we are focusing on your company’s administration.
