Company Secretary Services

Although smaller private companies are no longer required by law to appoint a Company Secretary, the role can be a very useful one to have in any organisation. The Company Secretary is typically responsible for:

  • advising on and securing best practice compliance with the Companies Acts and other company regulations
  • advising on and ensuring compliance with the company’s constitution and relevant laws
  • providing independent advice to the board on all governance matters, risk management, policies and procedures
  • assisting with the induction and training of directors
  • facilitating the flow of information to directors
  • advising on the structure and implications of proposed transactions
  • advising on and coordinating the preparation of member circulars, financial statements and the annual report
  • organising all aspects of company meetings, such as the AGM
  • helping to maintain good relations with members/ shareholders
  • maintaining the company’s statutory registers, filing returns with Companies House
  • organising board meetings and minuting
  • maintaining the company’s records

The Company Secretary has sometimes been described as the ‘conscience of the company’ and plays a key role in ensuring the organisation behaves in a legally compliant and ethical way.

We recognise that many smaller organisations do not have the budget to employ a full time company secretary. Elderflower Legal & Secretarial Services offers a solution to this by providing company secretary services on an outsourced basis. You can appoint us on a fixed price retainer to carry out this role for you. We can structure the arrangement in the way that suits you best. For example, we can carry out all the duties or just some of them. We can work alongside your existing resource providing expert support on technical issues, while leaving them to focus on the more administrative duties such as minute-taking – the choice is yours. We will be happy to discuss and tailor an arrangement for company secretary services to suit your needs.
