Global Corporate Secretarial Services
Different jurisdictions across the globe require corporations to designate corporate secretaries which are to be present during meetings of the board of directors. Our team’s precise obligations differ, depending on the country that they are working in and the corporation’s bylaws.
Many people are led to believe that the primary role of a corporate secretary is taking and recording minutes of meetings of company administration. Although the task is among the primary corporate secretarial duties and responsibilities, it is nowhere near what a corporate secretarial team does. Throughout the years of providing corporate secretarial services, our team has been able to do the following:
For board meetings
Our team plans and executes the meetings of committees and board of directors. This means we handle the strategic planning, sending out the invitations to appropriate attendees and their addresses, the formulation of agendas, reservation of meeting spaces, and covering of all logistical issues. Our corporate secretarial service essentially includes the overseeing of shareholder meetings of corporations.
For maintenance of records
Our team isn’t only tasked with taking the minutes of meetings, but also for the dissemination of minutes and their substance. The minutes of meetings of businesses are to be accurately described in order to communicate the board of directors’ final decisions effectively. Much more than a mere scribe, corporate secretarial services provided by the firm involves a team considered as an officer that implements the pronouncements of the board. Our team organizes and retains the significant documents of corporations including business licenses, stock transfers, contracts, Capitalization Table of a corporation, shareholders correspondence, and proxy statements.
Our team is willing and able in providing advice to a board of directors regarding its duties and goals. We have also briefed company officers on their individual roles. With a corporation that has subsidiaries, our team often counsels company administration with regards on ways in managing and governing the subsidiaries or representative offices.
As new board members can be brought onto the board of directors of a corporation, we are tasked in overseeing the new members’ orientation, briefings, and training.
