Ease your administrative compliance burden and ensure that your company operates within relevant legislation.

Company Secretarial Compliance

Since 2014, the Companies Act has required every company Director to appoint a Company Secretary who has the skills and resources to carry out a range of financial and statutory obligations. These services can be provided by our specialists at Gilroy Gannon through our Company Secretarial Compliance service. 

An initial confidential discussion to discuss your needs can be arranged by contacting any one of our restructuring experts.

Company Secretarial Duties

A Company Secretary is not an administrator or a key stakeholder within your company. Instead, the primary purpose of this role is to ensure that the company operates within relevant legislation. It can be a company director, but that person should have the relevant skills and experience to fulfil company secretary duties confidently. Without a competent Company Secretary, your business runs the risk of missing essential deadlines like the Annual Return deadline and incurring penalties; it also may lose your business the ability to claim audit exemption.
