Tax Strategies and Planning for Small to Medium Businesses

Company Secretarial

Despite the legislation change, a company secretarial assistant role may still be vital for your business.

From 6th April 2008 private companies are no longer required to have a company secretary, even though many of the tasks undertaken by a company secretarial assistant are still required to remain compliant. In addition, companies with only one director will often require a second signature on legal documentation (for example when you open a bank account). Therefore many companies are still opting to appoint a assistant company secretary.

There are always company legislation changes taking place and this makes it very easy for small to medium-sized companies to miss changes in deadlines and potentially incur heavy fines and non-compliance.

The Company Secretary services offered by Incisive Accounting take the worry of potential non-compliance off your shoulders as we will manage your statutory affairs for you. This service is ideal for contractors, consultants or professionals who work alone but want the cover of being a limited company. It is also valuable for people who live outside Britain and need a signatory within the UK.
