Company secretarial services
Why does our director act as your company secretary?
By acting as company secretary and providing the registered office, we can ensure all of your deadlines are met effectively through our tight compliance processes.
This saves us having to contact you in the case of any trivial matters and enables us to carry out the relevant duties associated with dealing with the statutory bodies on your behalf.
What does the company secretary do?
The company secretary has the ability to sign off accounts, registration documents with the statutory bodies (VAT, PAYE and Corporation Tax) and confirmation statements to Companies House. The location of your registered office also determines which HMRC office handles your corporation tax affairs, allowing us to deal with the same tax office for all our clients, meet client deadlines easily, and handle routine mail quickly and easily.
The Company Secretary is not involved in the day-to-day running of the company and is not a signatory on the bank account.
What changes do we carry out on your behalf to enable us to effectively carry out our duties as your company secretary?
- We will change your company’s registered office from your home address to our Orchard House address. Your trading address will not be changed.
- We will add a SAIL address (Single Alternative Inspection Location) as that of our office address in Reigate
- We will register your company for PROOF, so that no one can alter your details on the Companies House website without first sending a letter to the registered office
- We will shorten your company’s year-end so that it coincides with the end of the nearest previous calendar quarter, which saves time and expense when producing Corporation Tax returns
- We will normally increase your share capital if necessary so that you have £100 of share capital. This makes it easier to add or change shareholding in the future.
When is the company secretary added?
The company secretary is added once the business bank account has been opened.
