Since 6th April 2008, unless stipulated by the Articles of Association of a company, the Companies Act 2006 no longer requires private limited companies to appoint a company secretary.
Even if you choose not to appoint a company secretary, there are still company secretarial duties to undertake, such as creating and maintaining the company’s registers and making necessary filings at Companies House within certain timescales. Directors of limited companies are legally obliged to ensure that companies meets these obligations and there are penalties for non-compliance.
Some of the most common company secretarial tasks are;
- Confirmation Statement (previously known as the Annual Return)
- Change of address (registered office and/or Directors)
- Changes to shares
- Appointment / Termination of Directors
We can provide company secretarial support to your business, giving you the peace of mind that all necessary tasks are completed accurately and in a timely manner, giving you time to focus on growing your profits.
Don’t just take our word for it!
We chose to work with Caroline Hinde Accountancy because we wanted to have a real-time view of our business performance, rather than months after the year had ended. Having this information has enabled us to take informed decisions which has enabled a period of growth for us.
Knowing that everything is taken care of on a monthly basis gives us huge peace of mind and we always know well in advance of our tax liabilities so we are always in control of our cashflow. We now use the software recommended to us to send our customers invoices which look professional and make it easy for us to monitor any outstanding invoices.
The service we receive from Caroline Hinde Accountancy is invaluable - they're approachable, friendly and professional.
Caroline has recently finished my accounts for me. She has done an excellent job of pulling everything together and I felt both relieved and confident, that they were submitted correctly.
I am so pleased that I asked for Caroline's assistance in helping me with my accounts. Even though I'm just a small business, it was nice to have that reassurance, that everything has been done correctly. It was money well spent!
I found Caroline to be very approachable and helpful in her advice. A lovely person to work with - thank you!
A fabulous accountant with a personality and a sense of humour? An oxymoron I hear you cry! But not at all. Caroline Hinde is all of that!
For a small business owner like me who knows next to nothing about self assessment and has no inclination to further their knowledge, what I need is someone who simply takes care of it all. That’s exactly what I got from Caroline; she is efficient and friendly and is incredibly knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble and she has taken all the stress out of the whole process for me.
I can’t praise Caroline highly enough and would recommend her to anyone I know and indeed have done so whenever I can. Look no further than Caroline, and you will not be disappointed.
I have found Caroline to be highly professional, efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful in my dealings with her, and have no hesitation making a recommendation.
