Through experience, we have understood that business owners and managers do have an entrepreneurial driving force, which we highly commend! However, experience has also taught us about the importance of planning. Without sound analysis, clear projections, and well-thought out contingencies, businesses tend to become hostages to fortune. Proactive management is replaced by reactive coping, and instead of following a well-thought-out plan, owners and managers are reduced to responding to unforeseen events, or trying to catch up on missed opportunities. This is why we encourage our clients to schedule regular planning sessions:
If you are looking for basic compliance support, our Company Secretarial package for Private Limited Companies is ideal for this purpose as it includes:
Our standard Company Secretarial service does not include managing your company’s board meetings, preparing minutes or resolutions, or specialist consultancy work. Our fees for this work will be quoted separately should you require such assistance from us.
We also offer our new Directors’ Service Address facility, at our Watford office, to our Company Secretarial clients. This service allows a director to keep his or her Residential Address private and to use a service Address on the public record. For more information please visit our Directors’ Service Address page.
From 1 October 2009 Companies must keep all of their statutory registers at either their registered office or a Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL) based in England or Wales. We can arrange for your company’s records to be kept at our Watford Address and facilitate their inspection to enable you to comply with the new Companies Act 2006 provisions. Please visit SAIL page for more information on this matter.
The Companies Act requires companies to submit various documents within strict time limits. Not only is this a considerable administrative burden, failure to comply can result in potentially severe penalties for directors.
We can relieve you of both the burden and the worry by helping with your Company Secretarial duties. Our service in detail includes:

Your Company must have a Registered Office Address where official documents and correspondence from Companies House and other government organisations such as HMRC and the court service can be served. This address must be shown on all your stationery, invoices as well as your website.
Many companies use our address as their Registered Office in order to benefit from our Watford address or to protect their privacy if trading from a home address.
Our registered office service includes the forwarding of all official correspondence to a designated address from our Watford Office.
Please note that our Registered Office Service is not a general business Address Service. If you are also interested in our business address and Mail Forwarding service for your company, please visit our Business Address Service page.
Since 1st October 2009 Directors no longer need to have their home addresses on the public record. Instead, they can give a ‘Director’s service Address’. If you would like to find out more about this service, please visit our Directors’ Service address page for more details.
Business Address Service, also known as mail forwarding service, is often used by companies to present their corporate image to their customers, for specific marketing campaigns, proxy forms on general meetings and for many more business purposes. Whatever the reason, you can take advantage of our Watford address as your business address, which you can show on your stationery and website.
Our Business Address/Mail Forwarding Service include:
All companies incorporated after 1st October 2009 are legally obliged to register two addresses for each Director with Companies House – the Director’s usual residential address (which is kept confidential), and a service address (which is available to the public on the Companies House Register). For a Company Secretary it is only necessary to register a service address.
Directors of existing companies can choose and Register a service Address to replace their residential Address on the public record.*
We can offer Directors and Company Secretaries the use of our Watford Address as their Service Address.
Our Service Includes:
We also offer Watford Registered office address for companies. If you wish your company to also benefit from this service, please visit our Registered Office page.
*NB: For existing Directors whose Residential address is already on the Public Record, a service address can replace this as well, but old address References (e.g. on Historical documents such as annual returns) will remain available to the public unless a successful application is made to the Registrar to remove the address from the public Register for reasons of the Director’s safety and security.
From 1st October 2009, companies must keep all of their statutory registers at either their registered office or a Single Alternative Inspection Location (SAIL) based in England or Wales. All forms previously filed at Companies House regarding the location for inspection of the Register of Members are no longer valid and the company’s records are deemed to be held at the company’s registered office address.
If a company wishes to hold any of its records at a location different from the registered office, for example at the Company Secretary’s office if the registered office is elsewhere, a SAIL form must be filed at Companies House as soon as possible after 1st October. Only one alternative inspection address is permitted and all the statutory registers of a single type must be kept together at either the SAIL or registered office.
We can provide you with a SAIL address at our Watford office and facilitate inspection of your company records, enabling you to comply with the new Companies Act 2006 provisions.
Our SAIL address service is priced at £99 per annum and includes the preparation and submission of the appropriate forms to Companies House.
