What is a Nominee Secretary?
Private Limited Companies are no longer required to have a Company Secretary, however it is optional for them to appoint one. A Nominee Secretary is where someone will act as Secretary of your company. With a nominee service, you can protect your details and ensure confidentiality. We do not get involved in the running of your company and are on the Companies House register in name only.
As Nominee of a company, we will act in name only and will not have any involvement with the company. If you require any documents to be signed by the Nominee, additional charges will apply.
This service is valid for a period of 12 months, and can be renewed after this period. This service includes a Corporate Nominee Secretary to be appointed to your UK Company.
When can I use a Nominee?
You can select to have a Nominee Secretary when incorporating your company and entering all the company information. The Nominee will then be appointed upon incorporation and the name of the Nominee will appear on the incorporation documents under the secretary details.
You are also able to purchase our Nominee Secretary Service after incorporation. Once we have received an order we will take action to appoint the secretary to your company. The change will also be recorded with Companies House.
What do I need to provide?
The only information that we require from you for our Nominee Secretary Service is the Beneficial Owners name and address, we will then appoint the nominee for you and prepare Nominee Documents for you. You will be asked to provide the Beneficial Owners information on receipt of an order.
Will I receive any documents once a Nominee has been appointed?
Upon receipt of your order, we will proceed to appoint the Secretary to your company. Once we have been appointed, you will receive a full set of documents regarding the Nominee Secretary. The documents will be posted to you via Standard Royal Mail delivery, the documents you will receive are listed below:
- Nominee Agreement
- Secretary Resignation Letter (for future use)
- Terms and Conditions for Nominee
