Company Secretarial and Governance Reporting

As corporate governance responsibilities have increased, so have legal teams’ workloads. Fulfilling company secretarial duties cannot be overlooked, but they often take considerable time – whether that’s reporting to authorities, maintaining statutory books or facilitating directors’ meetings.

Our team of experienced lawyers can help, having worked with large and complex organisations across sectors and collecting the wealth of knowledge you need to fulfil your business obligations

Company Secretarial and Governance Reporting FAQs

What does a company secretary do?

A Company Secretary ensures that a company and its directors comply with company legislation, the articles of the company and generally with legal and financial requirements. They may act as signatory of legal documents on behalf of the company.

When should a business employ the services of a company secretary?

If you run a private company and the articles of association stipulate that you require a company secretary, then one must be appointed.

What case studies do you have for Company Secretarial and Governance Reporting?

Lots! See our work for BT, Kantar and many legal firms and companies you will have heard of.

Does a company secretary need to be a lawyer?

A company secretary of a private company is not required to be a lawyer. However, especially for listed companies, given the volume of compliance required, it is advisable that the company secretary does have some qualifications such as the ICSA that gives them a Chartered Secretary status.

Can company secretarial services be used on an ad hoc on demand basis?

Yes! Company Secretarial work is very suited to ongoing ad hoc support as they often have to meet filings deadlines and the work is concentrated around those dates.

Can I hire a Governance Reporter on a part time or per project basis?

Of course you can. This is what we do here at Obelisk Support
