Company secretarial compliance made simple by qualified and experienced company secretaries. We remove the burden of complying with the Companies Act.

It is often perceived that professional, concise and good quality company secretarial services can only be obtained from large auditing or attorney firms.  It is also beyond the budgetary constraints of certain companies to employ a full time qualified company secretary, in particular when this position, in unlisted or smaller companies does not require a full time resource.  

The role of the company secretary has changed in its scope, duties and responsibilities, particularly with the issue of good corporate governance being an integral part of doing business.  This may mean that company secretaries may not have sufficient time to execute and manage all the areas that are required of them, resulting in backlogs of statutory work.

In the last two years we have seen many changes:

  • firstly the Corporate Laws Amendment Act
  • the New Companies Bill which has totally rewritten the Companies Act and will be promulgated in June 2010,
  • Corporate Governance: King 3 which is applicable to all businesses from sole proprietor to listed company and is expected to be released in September 2009,
  • as well as the recent abolishment of the Stamp Duties Act. 

These amendments result in a total change in the current company secretarial procedures as well as more reporting requirements from directors.  We strive to equip ourselves with the knowledge needed to make the transition a smooth one.

With a combined 27 years of company secretarial experience, in both the auditing and listed company environments, and the qualifications to support that experience, we offer a complete scope of high quality company secretarial services.
