Company secretarial

RSM’s Corporate Secretarial team provides directors and senior management with a full range of professional compliance and transactional services.

From start-up and compliance to comprehensive project and transaction support we can assist your business. This could include advising on company formation and articles of association; dealing with changes of officers or shareholders; re-organising share capital or group structures; and so on.

RSM’s Corporate Secretarial team can help mitigate the risk of compliance failure through their on-going statutory compliance service by:

  • maintaining accurate and up-to-date statutory registers, which is a legal requirement;
  • filing accounts and preparing directors’ minutes to approve them;
  • filing annual confirmation statements, persons of significant control (PSC) notifications, and other routine documents at Companies House; 
  • filing information with the Charity Commission, where appropriate; and
  • providing a registered office address and mail forwarding facility at any of RSM’s UK office locations.

Qualified, experienced company secretaries

Our team has extensive technical and practical knowledge, and expertise in all areas of law and regulation relating to corporate secretarial matters. We specialise in delivering bespoke services and are particularly adept at assisting businesses to get back on track when unusual, complex or unexpected issues arise.

RSM’s qualified and experienced company secretaries ensure that directors can comply with statutory requirements primarily those under the Companies Act 2006. This means you can outsource the whole of your corporate secretarial function to us with the assurance that the board has a dedicated, professional service in place.

  • incorporation of companies and LLPs;
  • PSC advice and notifications;
  • branch registrations for overseas entities;
  • drafting bespoke (and updating existing) articles of association;
  • share capital structuring including, but not limited to, share issues and transfers, capital reductions, off-market purchases of shares, and share for share exchanges;
