Company secretarial duties
The company law does not define specifically the duties of the company secretarial or the person responsible for company secretarial matters. However, they may be divided generally into three main areas:
- maintaining statutory registers (keeping the company’s records up to date)
- completing and filing statutory forms (keeping the public record up to date)
- meetings and resolutions (making sure the company abides by both its internal regulations and the law)
How to keep your company safe?
Recently Companies House has reported increasing levels of fraudulent filing of information. Quite often the fraud starts with changing the company’s registered office by submitting the appropriate form to Companies House. After the change of address has been accepted, the fraudsters can change directors or file false accounts. All this can happen while the company isn’t aware that they have been hijacked. The fraudsters can then buy goods or obtain credit based on this false information.
The Companies House is keen that companies file their information online in order to avoid this. This can be a very secure method, particularly if the company signs up for the enhanced security arrangements offered by their PROOF (protected online filing) system. The PROOF system prevents the paper filing of certain forms, making it very difficult for the fraudsters to hijack your company.
