Company Secretarial Services

Bespoke & cost-effective company secretary support to ensure your organisation is fully compliant and embeds high quality governance practices.

The impact of the pandemic on individuals, the economy and businesses has been far reaching. Overnight, organisations have had to redesign how they work, while continuing to deal with the challenges of day-to-day business.

With increased pressure on time and resource, governance matters may have taken a backseat.

Yet effective governance is always critical, and the role of the Company Secretary is key to the efficiency and effectiveness of the Board and the smooth running of the business. Good company secretaries keep the wheels turning: they ensure sound governance, compliance with legal requirements and accurate information management.

But when there is so much else going on, and when capacity is stretched, we know that it can be difficult to stay on top of these tasks.

So, how can we help?

We can undertake some of your company secretarial duties and enable you to focus on your primary responsibilities, safe in the knowledge that core governance support duties are being carried out efficiently and effectively. Our flexible approach also means you can commission our support as and when you require it.

Our services

We can offer any combination of these company secretarial services, remotely or in person, alongside any other governance support which you might need:

  1. Board or committee meeting, AGM, and Board away-day preparation and coordination: This includes scheduling meetings; preparation and circulation of the agenda/material packs; recording attendance; hosting virtual meetings; facilitating away-days; planning for future meetings; and producing Q&A documentation.
  2. Minute taking: This includes: attending meetings, taking minutes, recording actions points and sending within an agreed period.
  3. Light-touch (add-ons) advice on improving: (i) the quality of meeting papers and agendas; (ii) governance documents; (iii) the conduct of meetings.
  4. Being your named company secretary: This includes filing documents with registration and statutory bodies and updating Companies House registers.

Why us?

Our Governance team has a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience around good governance, Board effectiveness and company secretarial practices. Two members of our team, Sade Joseph and Stephen Bull, are ICSA qualified Company Secretaries.

Uniquely, we have access to a full range of wider expertise within our business. e.g. recruitment, assurance, and finance, to help inform our approach.
