Company Secretarial

A lot has changed in the world today and so have company secretarial services. Company secretarial was traditionally characterized by a clerk taking board minutes but has evolved to become a driver of Companies board affairs as well as acting as a consultant on issues relating to Companies Investor relations.

In Kenya, the profession is governed by chapter 534 laws of Kenya and it is a requirement that every Limited Company registered under the Companies Act (Cap 486) must have a Qualified Company Secretary. The Company Secretary assists the company directors in complying with statutory requirements under the Companies Act and in the implementation of corporate governance structure and principles.

A Company Secretary must therefore be suitably trained, and professionally qualified to take on these responsibilities. Our company secretarial services include and are not limited to the following:
• Incorporating Company; reserving and searching the availability of the preferred name, preparing the memorandum and articles of association and obtaining the certificate of incorporation.
• Company Secretary; attending board meetings
• Company resolutions; drafting and filing with the registrar of companies; Board and AGM resolutions
• Preparation & Filing of statutory returns such as the company's annual return; Besides annual returns one is required to notify the Registrar of Companies each time the location of the company's registered office changes or each time there are changes among the directors, secretaries or in their particulars. There are special forms for making these returns as well as time limits within which these returns must be made.
• Maintenance of the Company Share register; Companies are required to maintain updated share register/s with updated details of all shareholders and their shareholding.
