Did you know that as well as accounts and tax, Avanti can take care of all your company secretarial needs…Saving you time spent completing forms and updating registers! By passing this to Avanti, you can focus on growing your business, developing your products and implementing your marketing strategy.
Why choose to use a registered office? Your Companies registered address is visible on Companies House, therefore if you make it your business premises or your home address- there is no separation between the company and yourself as the Director.
This month Avanti have helped Clients to;
- File confirmation statements
- Change their registered office
- Update registers
- Amend shareholders
The Confirmation statement (annual return) must be filed every year, it confirms or allows you the opportunity to amend and update company information such as Director, shareholder or address details. Failure to submit your confirmation statement can result in fines up to £5,000 and your company may be struck off.
We have just taken on a client and although we are not the Registered Office or hold their Company Secretarial documentation, we are assisting them with their Company Secretarial work.
Normally, we send a Confirmation Statement reminder to the client for them to authorise us to submit and if there are any amendments we amend upon submission. However with this particular case I had to change the directors’ addresses from the previous accountant’s address, together with the people who were Persons of Significant Control (PSC) for the company.
One of the shareholder’s had recently got married and the surname had to be changed too.
Companies House had a warning sign when it came to me confirming the shares allotted on Companies House website, because no shares had been assigned to any shareholders. This I corrected and sent new share certificates for signature.
Last but not least, one of the SIC codes had to be removed as the company no longer wanted that, however, another category had to be added.
Unfortunately, Companies House website is not very user friendly, for instance changing one of the PSC’s took me four attempts as the site kept crashing.
This is just an example of Avanti assisting Limited Companies, which takes quite a lot of time, but we are only too pleased to help.
As with all Avanti services (08000) 388 799 , you can pick and mix the service you require, so if you need an all singing all dancing registered office and company secretary or just the safety net of company secretarial assistance, we can help you.
