Your Legal Obligations

As a director of your business, you have certain legal obligations to fulfil.

Did you know, for example, that you have to notify Companies House when directors change, or register anyone of significant control?

It may sound mind-numbingly boring. You probably have very little idea what these governance and compliance duties involve and chances are they are bottom of your priority list.

Unfortunately, they can’t be neglected. These obligations are prescribed by The Companies Act 2006. If you are persistently non-compliant, you could be disqualified as a director and be landed with large fines.

So why not leave these legal technicalities to us. We will take on the role of company secretary – who can equally discharge these duties – while you focus on what you do best: Running your business.


The company secretary’s role is to reduce your workload by taking care of your statutory duties and responsibilities. The good news is that not only do we make sure you are compliant, we stay on top of all the changing rules and regulations on your behalf – because they change often!

Here are some of the areas we take off your hands:

  • Act as company secretary
  • Hold and maintain statutory books
  • Provide a registered office facility
  • File your annual confirmation statement
  • Maintain persons of significant control register
  • Record changes to officers and members
  • Complex company structural changes
  • Incorporation of new companies
  • Companies House register checks
  • Annual report of company’s register

We take responsibility for keeping you up to date on compliance changes.

  • Confirmation Statement
  • Persons of Significant Control (PSC) Register
  • Maintaining Statutory Books and Records
