Following the implementation of the Companies Act 2006, private limited companies are no longer required to have a Company Secretary. However, the duties that a Company Secretary traditionally fulfilled still need to be carried out. These include ensuring that the company registers and books are maintained up to date, all the filing requirements are met with Companies House and that the company complies with statutory and regulatory requirements. These duties can distract directors from the business of the company and yet are essential. For more information about this annual service please contact Tom Marshall on 01483 567676.
