Until six of April 2008, all companies, public or private, needed to have a secretary. The paradox is that then, as now, there was no job description for the secretary in company's legislation. As a result, many small private companies filled the post by giving it to one of the directors. A company with only one director could not double up the role, so a spouse or employee was often press-ganged into the service.

Very small private companies there remains an administrative job to be done, whether a secretary is formally appointed to do it or not. There are still returns to be filed with Companies House, registers to be kept up to date, paperwork to be processed.

Where there is no secretary, & no deputy or assistant, the Companies Act says that anything required to be done by secretary can instead be done by someone authorized by the board of directors. Similarly, anything to be done to the company secretary, such as the service of notice, can be done to anyone authorized by the directors for that purpose.

As noted above, there is no easily accessible job description for a company secretary. There are certain duties dotted around, the Companies Act that are core to the role of most holders of the office, but there are other responsibilities often added to the post, such as property management, pensions administration, the operation of share & other incentive schemes, and maintaining adequate insurance cover.

The company secretary attends all board meetings & is directly answerable to board. Meetings of the directors will be convened by the secretary in conjunction with the chairman, an one or the company secretary's prime function will be produce minutes of the board meeting. Indeed, it is the requirement of the Companies Act that minutes of all meetings of directors are produced & kept for at least 10 years.

Failure to do so is an offence punishable by a fine. Another core task for the secretary is to maintenance of the statutory registers. The share register, which is the definitive record of who the company's shareholders are, who can vote, & to whom dividends are paid. Transfer of shares need to be entered in the register & dealt with according to the company's articles. Most companies with a share register of any size will contract out this work to the professional registrars, such as Coddan Formations.

The registers of directors & secretaries that record the personal details of the company's office holders & reflect the information filed at Companies House. The register of charges in which details of all mortgages and other charges granted by the company to its lenders & other parties must be recorded.

There are many returns that a private limited company needs to make to Companies House to update the information held on the public record – changes to the board, share issues, the passing of certain shareholder resolutions & confirmation statement, which is a snapshot of the company at a particular date in the year, recording details of the directors, the issued share capital, & the current shareholders.

The secretary will also often be the person responsible for ensuring the company's name & other details appear where they should on business stationary at any premises where the company carries on business. The secretary will also look after communications with shareholders.

This will include sending then the confirmation statement and annual accounts each year, & convening shareholders meetings (the annual general meeting). Execution of formal documents, such as property deeds, or mortgage documents, used to need the signatures of two directors, or one director & the secretary.

The removal of the requirement for private companies to have a company secretary, however, forced a change in the rules. Since April 2008, any company, public or private, has been able to execute a document in one of four ways: -
By the signature of a single director witnessed by a second person (who need not be a director or connected in any way with the company)
By applying the company's common seal to the document (if it has one), witnessed by two directors, or by a director & the secretary
By the signature of two directors By the signature of a director & the secretary

A word of warning before you'll start a company registration without of a secretary

A word of warning: allowing one director to sign on behalf of the private company limited by shares may be administratively convenient, but it can leave an individual exposed to making major decisions on their own that will bind the private company. Two heads can be better that one, so best practice may be for internal company policy to insist on two signatures.

A company secretary may not be a director, but they will often be liable for breach of duty in the same way as board members. The code of directors’ duties, set in the Companies Act, is not expressed as applying to the secretary, but, as an officer of the private company, the duty to promote the company's success should apply in equal measure, as should the obligations to avoid a conflict of interest, and exercise independent judgement.

Although the change in law removed the requirement to appoint a secretary "officially", however it is important to distinguish the requirement to file secretary particulars with Companies House.

The latter still remains a significant essential to any company, the role of a secretary is still vital to companies, a secretary will take care of all legal filings required to stay in line with the changing legislation, it is therefore important to understand that their duties have not extinguished, even if they are not registered on public record.

As discussed above, the secretary has many administrative responsibilities, including filing confirmation statement at Companies House & ensuring compliance with the Companies Act. Numerous sections in the Act provide that, where is a failure to file or comply, "an offence is committed by every officer of the company who is in default". If the secretary is the person with prime responsibility for the task, they will be the person in default & liable to the fine.
