Company Secretarial

Non-Compliance with Companies House filing rules is now a criminal offence. Late filing penalties are painfully high and within three months, they now strike your company off the register leaving the proceeds of your bank account in the hands of the state, Getting this wrong really isn’t an option.

Does that mean that you need to put your private details on public display meaning that everyone knows where you live and opening the floodgates to bombard you with marketing spam?

Not necessarily. Using a company secretary and our office as your registered office address and Director’s service address will keep your details private and will ensure that you stay compliant with all of the Companies House filing rules.

Our sister company, Company Secretary specialise in providing company secretarial support to a wide variety of companies varying from single owner/director businesses to much larger businesses with millions of pounds of turnover.

With many years’ experience of company secretarial work, we are committed to ensuring that you never miss a deadline and never suffer a late filing penalty.
