While the Companies Act does not specify the role of the secretary, their duties are often determined in the employment contract. The secretary is responsible for filing the confirmation statement and other statutory company documentation, and assuring that Companies House is aware of any changes to the company structure, including the addition or subtraction of members and the changes of registered office address. Individuals can complete many of these tasks by visiting the Companies House website, using their webfiling system.

Company Secretary Responsibility

Company Secretary Responsibility

Company secretaries are also frequently involved with making sure the company is legally compliant in areas such as health and safety and data protection. They are also often asked to sign leases on behalf of the board or act as a signatory more generally & may also get involved in negotiations with outside advisers, including accountants and lawyers. If a company has a company secretary, directors will usually delegate their responsibility for ensuring sending up-to-date information to Companies House to the secretary.
