Company Secretarial

Introduction

Peterkins have provided professional company secretarial services for many years. This work is conducted by our corporate team.

We offer different levels of service to meet different needs. We can do as little or as much as you require.

Basic Service

Acting as registered office only; scanning or forwarding all post received to an agreed e-mail address or UK postal address for the attention of a person designated by the company.

Standard Service

The principal elements of our standard service include:

  • Acting as registered office;
  • Acting as company secretary;
  • Preparing and filing Confirmation Statement;
  • Appointment and resignation of directors;
  • Maintenance of company statutory registers;
  • Preparing and filing of resolutions and required company forms;
  • Drafting and completing Board and General Meeting Minutes;
  • Forwarding post received;
  • Response to your accountant’s annual audit letter;
  • Ensuring based on information provided that the company meets its’ legal requirements, including maintaining the list of Persons with Significant Control - which is becoming increasingly important.

Even if we are not the company secretary, we are able to provide a full company advisory and support service; providing documents, forms and advice as required.

In addition to the Standard Service, we can provide assistance regarding corporate re-organisations, troubleshooting and ensuring full compliance with company law.

Company Formation Services

Peterkins can provide a company formation service, normally within 24 hours incorporated in a standard form, or with more sophisticated capital structures if necessary.

We can set up a "tailor-made" company for a client. This involves consideration of key issues such as:

  • Who the directors will be;
  • Who the shareholders will be and what proportion of shares each will hold;
  • The terms of the Articles of Association (Constitution and Rules) of the company, and what provisions need to be included in these to safeguard the interests of each shareholder in the future;
  • The share capital of the company, and whether this should be divided into different types of shares to maximise the tax allowances available to individual shareholders;
  • Company name.

It may be beneficial to have various types of shares when forming a company. This can allow different dividends to be paid to different shareholders, to maximise taxation allowances.

The above services are not exhaustive of what Peterkins offer.
