Frequently asked questions

Why outsource your CoSec work?

Outsourcing CoSec work allows companies to focus on their core business activities while ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. By leveraging the expertise of specialised professionals, organisations can streamline processes, reduce costs and mitigate the risks of non-compliance.

What does a company secretary do?

A company secretary ensures compliance with legal and regulatory obligations, maintains accurate corporate records, and facilitates effective communication between the board of directors, shareholders, and regulatory authorities. They also assist in corporate governance, manage meetings and provide guidance on company law matters.

Is it necessary for every company to have a CoSec?

Having a company secretary is mandatory in some jurisdictions. Where it isn't mandatory, having dedicated CoSec support is highly recommended to ensure compliance with fast-moving legal and regulatory requirements. 

What are a company’s statutory records?

Companies are required to maintain various mandatory records, including registers of members, directors, and significant shareholders, as well as accounting records and minutes of meetings.

Additionally, they must file annual financial statements, confirmation statements, and other documents with the relevant regional Registrars, ensuring transparency and compliance with statutory obligations.

What is the difference between corporate governance and corporate compliance?

Corporate governance sets the framework for decision-making and accountability, whereas corporate compliance ensures that actions comply with relevant laws and regulations.
