The term company secretary is greatly misunderstood in the commercial world. An expert company secretarial advisor is invaluable in guiding a company through many of its basic and more complex needs during its corporate lifetime.
A company secretary’s role ranges from dealing with company formations and compliance issues to advising on complex restructuring and everything in between.
Companies Act 2014 S 129 (4) states that ‘The directors of a company shall have a duty to ensure that the person appointed as secretary has the skills or resources necessary to discharge his or her statutory and other duties.’ Sheil Kinnear, with our expert in house company secretarial team can help your company not only comply but also evolve as its needs change.
It is imperative that all Directors ensure that a proper system of Corporate Compliance is in place in line with Company Law. The Company Law Enforcement Act, 2001 gives the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) extensive powers to inspect, at any time, the statutory records and registers of a Company.
It is absolutely vital that these Statutory records are properly maintained and kept up to date to avoid incurring penalties.
