What is corporate governance?
Every limited company in the UK must maintain good corporate governance, i.e. the system of legal rules and internal procedures that govern the responsible management of a business.
The purpose of corporate governance is to protect the interests of shareholders, employees, customers, and other stakeholders by setting clear rules and expectations for how the company is managed. If managed well, it promotes a culture of transparency, accountability and trust.
What is the role of a company secretary?
Company secretaries oversee tasks relating to corporate governance and are responsible for ensuring compliance with company law.
The skillset required is broad, so in small businesses, the responsibility often falls to one of the board members. It can be time-consuming to carry out the administration required and stay up-to-date with the law. Thankfully, it is possible to outsource these tasks to your accountant.
What tasks are company secretaries responsible for?
A company secretary has many administrative tasks to fulfil. They are responsible for updating the company records at Companies House (also known as company books or statutory registers).
They must inform Companies House when there are certain changes to the business, such as:
- Changes to shares: transfers, bonus issues, share issues, new share classes (A/B/C shares), buy-backs etc.
- Changes to Persons of Significant Control (PSCs)
- Changes to secretaries and the board of directors (i.e. new appointments, resignations)
- Changes to the company name and registered office
Companies House requires forms to be submitted for each change. They all have different deadlines, so it’s important to keep up with the regulations.
Our company secretarial services
We can provide our company secretary services throughout the financial year to help fulfil your legal requirements.
This is an annual requirement and informs the Companies House of company changes, such as to Persons of Significant Control (PSCs). We can submit this on your behalf.
As part of our tax services, we can submit your accounts to Companies House, as well as your tax return to HMRC.
Updating statutory registers
We will update the statutory registers whenever there are changes to your company, such as the named company secretary, directors, shareholders, share capital, share transfers, company name and company address.
We can also help with company formation, dissolution, and restoration (i.e. when you want to restore a dissolved company).
