Company Secretarial Services

We can advise on your requirements for AGM, Annual Returns (which must be filed within 9 months of the end of your accounting period) and assessing your optimal Annual Return Date (ARD).

We’ll make sure you meet your legal requirements.

It can be difficult meeting all of the legal requirements around Annual and other returns and records.
