Preparation of statutory documents
In order to incorporate a company, its founders (or, depending on the relevant jurisdiction and type of company - the shareholders, the directors or simply the registered agent) must sign the articles of association - the main document that defines the name of the company being formed, its internal management structure, the possibility of increasing or reducing its share capital, as well as the details stipulating the manner of conducting shareholders' meetings or special provisions for the dissolution (liquidation) of the company.

For private limited companies there is no longer a statutory requirement to appointment a Company Secretary. However, in some instances it may be preferable to appoint a Secretary for reasons of status and image, or where a Company’s operations necessitate their appointment.
Whether you wish to appoint you own Company Secretary, or would like us to act in that capacity we are able to assist the company in providing outsourced Company Secretarial Services.
Constantis can provide a nominee company secretary for your private limited company. We have many years experience acting as a Company Secretary for client companies so you can feel confident we have the required knowledge to perform this role.
The nominee company secretary service is ideal for companies that do not wish to be burdened with administrative responsibilities. Up until recently the Company Secretary has been responsible for filing documents with Companies House and submitting the Annual return. Although changes to the Companies Acts now mean that a company is no longer required to appoint a Company Secretary using our company secretarial service means that the directors of a company can benefit from the excellent support of a professional company. For non-UK residents this service often proves invaluable as Constantis take care of Companies House administration for them.
