Why choose Menzies?

Stephen Prichard - Menzies AccountantPeople 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, and is committed to helping your company fulfil its commercial potential.

“The Menzies company secretarial team did a fantastic job for one of our clients – Hargreaves Holdings Limited restructuring the group of companies demerger by share capital reduction and set out each business of the company in a separate company and thus way more tax efficient than before.”

Our company secretaries work closely with our accounting and consultancy teams, to ensure all your compliance obligations are up-to-date. This allows you to focus on your business, in the knowledge that your company’s administration is in safe hands.
