There is no longer a legal requirement to appoint a company secretary, however companies with only one director will often require a second signature on legal documentation (for example when you open a bank account). If you do not appoint a company secretary this documentation will need to be signed by an appointed witness and many companies are still opting to appoint a company secretary.
If you do not have a suitable person to act as your company secretary, Duport Associates can provide this 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 want a signatory within the UK, if you are unfamiliar with UK legal requirements or terminology, or even if you just hate completing forms!
When you appoint Duport as your company secretary you can rest assured that the company is in good hands. We will look after compliance issues, ensure that your company remains in “good standing” with Companies House, will maintain the statutory register, and complete and file the annual return on behalf of the company - which includes payment of the official filing fee.
We also cover the reasonable cost of handling official company documents, which will be sent via the normal postal service (this does not include the handling of trade correspondence or the use of express or courier services except where agreed and paid for separately and in advance).
Duport's company secretary service provides you with the piece of mind that your records, register and annual return are all up to date, leaving you to run your business without the hassle of extra paperwork.
