At CRO, we are well known for our professional, fast, and effective company registration services. But did you know that we offer much more than just company formation? In today’s fast-paced business world, it is essential to have a reliable and efficient company secretarial service to manage business needs.

With a wide range of ad hoc services, CRO is the ideal partner for any business, big or small. In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to some of these services, focusing on how CRO can tailor its solutions to fit your business’s unique needs. We offer an extensive range of company secretarial services, which we will delve into here to provide you with a better understanding of what CRO can provide.

What Are Company Secretarial Services?

Company secretarial services ensure the compliance of a business with the operational aspects of corporate governance and company law. Handling tasks ranging from the appointment of directors, maintenance of statutory books, changes in company structure or name, and the submission of necessary documents to Companies House, for example. Services may include:

  • Share restructures
  • Company restorations
  • Reductions of share capital
  • Preparation of dormant accounts

Having these responsibilities managed by experts like those at CRO brings a range of benefits for businesses, such as:

  • Time Efficiency: Outsourcing company secretarial tasks to an expert service provider like CRO allows business owners and directors to focus on running their businesses effectively while leaving secretarial duties to professionals.
  • Expertise: These tasks require specific knowledge of company law and corporate governance. Service providers like CRO have extensive experience ensuring tasks are handled correctly and compliantly.
  • Cost-Effective: In-house management of these responsibilities may require hiring additional specialised staff, which can be costly. Outsourcing is often a more economical option.
  • Risk Mitigation: Professionals stay updated about changes in legal requirements, thus reducing risks associated with non-compliance.

Adhoc Company Secretarial Services at CRO

CRO’s ad-hoc company secretarial services play a crucial role in providing businesses with flexible solutions tailored to their individual needs. Rather than committing to a full suite of services, businesses can request specific tasks to be performed as and when required. This ad-hoc approach offers significant benefits such as cost-effectiveness, as businesses only pay for the services they need when they need them, as well as allowing greater flexibility and agility in managing their corporate secretarial needs. Let’s take a look at some of the ad-hoc services we offer.

Registered Office Address Services

Every company must have a registered office address, which serves as the company’s official correspondence address. This address is where Companies House, HM Revenue & Customs, and other government agencies will send notices and letters. With CRO’s Change of Registered Office Address Service, you can enjoy the benefits of a prestigious address for your business without having to worry about mail sorting and forwarding.

Change of Company Name

Our ad-hoc company name services help businesses effectively manage their branding and identity. These services include the process of changing a company’s name when required, as well as the option for a same-day name change, ensuring businesses have the flexibility to adapt or evolve their brand seamlessly.

CRO’s Service includes:

  • Change of Company Name, giving businesses the flexibility to update their identity when necessary.
  • Same-day Change of Company Name, providing an expedited service for those requiring a quick name change.
  • Name Swap, allowing a simultaneous change of company name; perfect for businesses undergoing a rebranding or restructuring process.

Preference Shares

Preference shares are a unique type of equity security that provides specific benefits in terms of dividends and capital repayment. They can play a crucial role in structuring your company’s capital in line with your investment strategy. CRO provides professional preference share services for businesses looking to optimise their capital structure or offer additional perks to particular stakeholders.

Our Service includes:

  • Creating Preference Shares, allowing your company to offer shareholders certain privileges over ordinary shareholders, such as fixed dividends or preference when the company’s assets are distributed.
  • Amending the Rights of Preference Shares, providing flexibility to adjust the benefits associated with these shares as the company evolves.
  • Converting Ordinary Shares into Preference Shares to give ordinary shareholders more rights or a guaranteed dividend.
