How A Corporate Secretary Can Benefit Your Business

What is a Corporate Secretary?

A Corporate Secretary maintains corporate Board Meeting minutes, ensures the organization’s records are properly stored and maintained based on local and federal regulations, and also prepares and submits any filings required by the government. This individual is considered an officer on the Board of Directors, and their duties also include board collaboration and coordination of shareholder directories and registrations where applicable.

Why would our organization need Corporate Secretary services?

This individual is often required to be a local national residing in the country where the company is registered.
