The Companies Acts 1963 to 2009 contain a range of statutory compliance obligations and have in some cases strict time limits to be observed; failure to do so could result in fines and penalties being imposed on the company and/or its directors.
The principal obligations are the holding of an annual general meeting (AGM) to approve audited accounts and the filing of the annual return and the appropriate certified copy accounts or abridged accounts (where required to do so). Where the companies’ turnover and balance sheet total fall below certain thresholds, a company that is neither a parent nor a subsidiary need not prepare audited accounts and can resolve to dispense with an audit provided the statutory conditions are met.
We can maintain and keep up-to-date the statutory registers of a company (Register of Members, Register of Directors and Secretaries, Register of Charges and Register of Directors’ Interests) and can help the Company Secretary in the performance of his or her duties, ensuring that all necessary Companies Registration Office forms are filed within the appropriate time limits. We can also provide technical assistance and attend or arrange AGMs on your behalf.
