About
United Kingdom

The UK is one of the most popular jurisdictions among our clients. Many business owners require a company based in the UK to manage their trading activities or establish a business presence within Europe. The United Kingdom is perhaps the easiest and least expensive country in the world to develop a limited company and the strength of the UK economy, together with the strong reputation that accompanies UK companies globally, making this country one of the most popular locations to establish a business.

The simplicity of conducting business within the European Economic Area (EEA), across international boundaries, leads many business owners to choose the United Kingdom as their favourite place of company registration. European law allows UK companies to operate anywhere within the EEA without restriction. UK law, of course, places no trading restrictions on companies registered in the UK, so your company will be able to carry out its activities anywhere in the world.

The Importance of a Company Secretary

The company secretary’s duties include all necessary administrative tasks within a company. Mainly, their role consists of three areas: the board, the private company and the shareholders.

They must ensure that the board members provide the necessary paperwork ahead of meetings and abide by board procedures. The secretary is responsible for ensuring compliance with legislation and proper conduct within company activity. They will be the point of contact for shareholders on matters regarding corporate legalities.

They would handle any preparation and paperwork arising before and after board meetings, such as informing all directors of the time, date and location of the meeting, producing agendas, taking minutes and producing a document at the end of the meeting and informing the appropriate people of any decisions made during the meeting, such as informing the regulatory information service if a decision was made regarding the payment of a dividend.
