A company secretary is the chief administrative officer in a company, and ensures that it complies with reporting and governance regulations.
Since 2008, there has been no legal requirement for private companies to have a company secretary, but the role is so strategically important that most continue to do so. Even if you do not have an appointed company secretary, there is still a legal requirement to carry out certain administrative tasks such as record keeping and submitting documentation to Companies House.
