Company Secretarial

Company Secretarial Services for Small Business

Dealing with Companies House filing requirements and Companies Act record keeping can be a confusing and difficult process, particularly if you have not previously had experience in this area. Most owner-managers have other priorities to focus on that would be better use of their time. For most small businesses, handing over this task to an expert is the way to go.

Our understanding

At Wisteria, we know how time-consuming the day-to-day work of maintaining registers and filing returns can be. What’s more, when changes to your business occur (such as transfers or the introduction of a new partner), things can become even more difficult.

We understand that, as a business owner, you would rather have this service handled by experts, with minimal stress on your part. We provide company secretarial services for hundreds of companies in the UK.

How we can help

Typically, we will deal with the core company secretarial services that your business needs:

  • Filing the Confirmation Statement and Accounts at Companies House
  • Setting up and maintaining company registers
  • Providing registered office services
  • Dealing with changes, such as for director details or registered office
  • Issuing dividends
  • Dealing with occasional share transfers

When we take on this role, we don’t typically act as the appointed company secretary, but we can do so if you require. Since the Companies Act 2006 was introduced, it is no longer a legal requirement for private limited companies to have an appointed company secretary, but you may have reasons to do so.

To learn more about the bespoke services that we offer, contact Wisteria today.
