Nominee Secretary Service


Nominee Secretary Service

The Companies Act 2006 – 6 April 2008 Implementation:

Under the provisions of Companies Act 2006, from 6 April 2008, it has not been mandatory for private companies to have a Company Secretary and they will be allowed to operate with just one Director if they wish.
However, a company still has the option to appoint a company secretary if required who will continue to act in the same way as before with no change to the duties and authority that applied under the previous rules.
It is important to note that there has been no change to the duties and responsibilities of the Company Secretary, and if no secretary is appointed then those duties must be carried out by the Director.
If you decide not to have a company secretary, you may be interested in our Annual Return Filing Service.
