Nominee Secretary Service

The Companies Act 2006 – 6 April 2008 Implementation:

Under the provisions of Companies Act 2006, from 6 April 2008, it has not been mandatory for private companies to have a Company Secretary and they will be allowed to operate with just one Director if they wish.

However, a company still has the option to appoint a company secretary if required who will continue to act in the same way as before with no change to the duties and authority that applied under the previous rules.

It is important to note that there has been no change to the duties and responsibilities of the Company Secretary, and if no secretary is appointed then those duties must be carried out by the Director.

If you decide not to have a company secretary, you may be interested in our Confirmation Statement Filing Service.

Procedure

Due to our legal obligations in complying with the latest Anti-Money Laundering regulations and Know Your Customer requirements, we must confirm the identity and proof of address for any customer taking one of our address services. We will attempt to do so using an electronic lookup function, but if this is unsuccessful, we will contact you outlining what hardcopy documents we require.

What is Included

Our dormant limited company @UKPLC Client Secretary Ltd will act as your company secretary and we will complete your annual confirmation statement.

Additional Information

The Company Secretary Service will need to be renewed after one year. You will be contacted regarding confirmation of details re: the filing of the confirmation statement, and renewal of the service. If we are to provide an efficient service, you will need to keep us informed of any changes in contact details. If we are unable to contact you, we will be unable to file the annual return, nor continue to act on your behalf. Ultimately we will have to refer the matter to Companies House.
