Setting Up a Limited Liability Company in the UK With a Local Secretary.

Why it makes sense to appoint a local secretary if you are a non-UK resident? If you have decided to register a limited company but are not a UK-resident, you might wonder why it pays to ask Coddan about appointing someone to act as your local nominated company secretary. There are two key reasons, the first legal and the second administrative. The best way to set up in GB of a limited company is to complete an application for at Companies House through by an approved online company formation agent․ It is deals with the regulation and incorporation of limited liability partnerships and limited by shares companies set up in the UK electronically or by post.

The legal situation: legally, there are no nationality or residency requirements for people acting as shareholders, directors or officers; and trust or corporate entities may act in any of these three roles.

However, in addition to its one or more directors, any private company may also have an appointed a secretary. In a private company with only one director, that individual cannot also fulfill the role of company secretary, but all legal secretary duties will belong to a sole director of a company. In such cases, if you don’t have an individual ready to undertake this role, or are not resident in the United Kingdom and require a signatory within the country, then Coddan as your company formation expert can meet these requirements for you.

The administrative burden: apart from the above stipulation, you could describe the secretary as your company limited by shares administrator. Within this job title, although there is no actual legal stipulation of the role, there are accepted key areas of activity. These are to effectively maintain all statutory registers, complete and file all statutory pro forma and meetings and resolutions.

From the description alone, you will appreciate how it makes good sense to have experienced professionals take the worry of all this "official" activity from your shoulders.
