Company Secretarial

The last thing that you need as a business owner is to use up your valuable time and resources making sure you are complying with the Companies Act.

With company legislation constantly changing, it is important that you are fully aware of how the changes affect you and your business.

Here at KMP we offer a wide range of company secretarial services which include:

  • Company formations
  • Preparation and filing of statutory returns
  • Acting as the registered office
  • Maintenance of statutory records
  • General advice on company law

When starting a new business, it is often beneficial to start up a limited company, due to potentially lower tax payments, and the ability to separate business and personal finances. Before setting up a company, it is important that you speak to an accountant and tax adviser, as making the wrong decision could affect your business. Incorporating an existing business requires a high level of technical tax advice and as such, we recommend that this proposition is discussed in detail with us prior to any decision.

Once a year your company must deliver to Companies House a return in the prescribed form as part of the Companies Act requirements. This acts as a snapshot of information about your company, its officers and members. We can prepare this statutory document for your approval and arrange its filing on line with Companies House together with other statutory documents, including changes in directors, company secretaries, accounting reference date or other statutory amendments. This way you will not have to worry about ensuring you have filed your returns on time, and avoid potential penalties.

Every company is required to have a registered office to which Companies House and the tax authorities send details of documents to be filed. We can provide registered office facilities at our office. This will ensure that the filing of those documents is dealt with efficiently and on time.

Maintenance of statutory records is one of the most important administrative tasks required by the Companies Acts and cannot be done properly without prompt and careful attention to detail and a sound grasp of the legal requirements. Our staff can maintain the statutory registers of your company, which include registers of members, directors, secretaries, directors’ interests and the minute books.

At KMP we offer competitive prices and a service that will suit your needs.
