Company Secreterial Services

Dealing with Companies House filing requirements and Companies Act record keeping can be a time consuming and difficult process, particularly if your company has multiple external shareholders or forms part of a group

The task often falls to the Finance Director or Financial Controller who have other priorities to focus on that would be better use of their time.

The day to day work of maintaining registers and filing returns can be time consuming enough, but things become more technically difficult and require even more time input when changes occur to the business, such as a share reorganisation, rights issue, or if crowdfunding is obtained.

Wisteria understands that most businesses don’t have the resources to support a full time in-house Company Secretary, but still require their expertise on a regular basis.  We currently provide company secretarial services to a number of mature businesses who need support in this area.  This includes working with AIM listed businesses as well as larger unlisted companies.

Typically, we look to take as much of the burden away from the in-house finance team and therefore we deal with:

  • Companies House filing requirements
  • Share issues and transfers
  • Maintaining registers and associated records
  • Dividends
  • Reorganisations, rights and bonus issues
  • Shareholder correspondence / Investor Relations

Commonly, when we take on this role we do not act as the appointed Company Secretary, but can do so if required.

Normally when appointed we will be either taking the burden away from the in-house team, or from an existing outsourced company secretarial services provider.  The handover can be challenging given the sheer quantity of information in some cases for large groups, however Wisteria’s experience and expertise means that our handover and implementation process has been honed to be as efficient and pain free as possible.

To discuss how we can deliver company secretarial services for your business, please contact us.
