Outsourcing your Company Secretary Role

The Company Secretary is responsible for looking after paperwork and filings, acting as a signatory on official documents and taking care of compliance matters. Make use of our Company Secretarial Services to be confident that your company is fully compliant.

Our Company Secretary Services:

Named Company Secretary for €20.75+VAT/month

This is our standard Company Secretarial Service paid annually upfront. We act as your Company Secretary in name only. This means we sign as the second signatory on company documents. In addition, we will maintain your Annual Return deadline. This means that we will prepare and file your form B1 with the Companies Registration Office (CRO).

This service does not include any general filings changes or submissions or any Company Secretarial guidance. Therefore, you’ll need to purchase our once-off services for any additional work.

Company Secretarial Maintenance for €33.25+VAT/month

This is our comprehensive and most popular Company Secretarial Service paid annually upfront. We will look after all the important filing changes and submissions to the CRO.

We will file your Annual Returns and look after all general Company Secretarial matters. For example, we’ll take care of any changes in directors, registered address, shareholders, and share capital. In addition, we’ll maintain and update the Seven Statutory Registers and provide minutes of meetings if required (check out our Annual General Meeting guide for more information). You’ll also have ongoing Company Secretarial advice.

This service includes up to 300 minutes of professional Company Secretary support per year. You can purchase more hours if you require additional work for €99+VAT per hour.

Other Company Secretarial services:

We also offer other Company Secretarial Services, not included above.
These services are purchased separately.

Company Formation service for €249+VAT/once-off fee

Set up a company in Ireland with the help of our Company Formation Service. We will take care of all the paperwork required to get your company started!

Our Irish Company Formation service includes:

  • Dedicated company support from our Company Team
  • Certificate of Incorporation
  • Company Constitution
  • Share Certificates
  • Company Registration Office Fees
  • Secure Digital Company Register.

Virtual Office for €20.75+VAT/month

Our Virtual Office service is paid annually upfront and includes the use of our Dublin 2 address. This can serve as your company’s registered office and business correspondence address.

We make sure your company’s mail is digitally forwarded to you on the same day it is received.

Additionally, you can use our address on your website, invoices, and bank statements.

However, note that this is not a trading address so we will take care of your company’s correspondence only.

Company Seal for €64+VAT/once-off fee

Every Limited Company is legally required to have a company seal.

The seal has your company name engraved on it in legible characters. This is used to manually seal certain legal documents and contracts. Examples include share transfers and certificates.

You’ll need this as soon as your company is set up and you have a company number.

What does a Company Secretary do?

1) Looks after the paperwork and files your Annual Return

For example, changing your home address or adding new Directors. In addition, a Company Secretary maintains your company’s Annual Return Deadline (ARD).

2) Acts as the second signatory on your company documentation.

If, for example, you need to open a bank account in Ireland, your Company Secretary needs to sign the application form. They also co-sign your Annual Return. This must be submitted to the Companies Registration Office (CRO).

3) Take care of compliance matters.

The duties and responsibilities of a Company Secretary can seem quite daunting at first, especially if the person you appointed doesn’t have expertise in Irish company law or the CRO. But don’t worry, it’s a simple process (file a form B10) to change your Company Secretary. We can take care of this for you in our Company Secretarial Services.

The compliance requirements for new Limited Companies can be difficult to manage if you don’t know what’s required. Get in touch today to learn more about outsourcing to a professional Company Secretary service.
