Annual Company Services

It has been said that the best service is service which is faithfully undertaken while you are unaware. Since its inception over two decades ago, Macdonald Henderson has discharged exceptional client service in a variety of ‘silent’ ways including filling corporate offices and the provision of privacy facilities. Some company examples follow.

Registered office facility – Cost £100 plus VAT and outlays

 Macdonald Henderson provides a registered office facility for many clients for a small annual fee. A few of the benefits afforded by this facility are listed below. The cost for this annual facility is payable on commencement and renewed at the end of each following financial year.

Provision of an accessible city centre company address;
Filtering of junk mail and forwarding proper correspondence to company secretary or other nominated officer/address;
Satisfaction of statute regarding company name to be affixed at the registered office;
Degree of anonymity / non-embarrassment over service of court documents;
Provision of a Scottish registered office, which may prove to be critical in any future commercial disputes;
(Optional) safe keeping of statutory registers / company books; and
(Optional) use of firm meeting room (subject to availability and firm terms and conditions of use).

 Director’s service address – Cost £50 plus VAT and outlays

A new feature of company administration exists for directors wishing to opt for an alternate service address so that their private residence remains private. There are a number of situations whereby the use of the registered office as an alternate service address may be impracticable or undesirable. Macdonald Henderson is pleased to fill the gap and offer a scaled down version of the registered office facility as a service address to any director for a nominal annual fee, payable in advance.

Company secretarial support – Cost from £150 plus VAT and outlays

Over the years Macdonald Henderson has supplied company secretarial support for many clients (of all sizes) for a small annual fee. A few of the benefits afforded by this facility are listed below.  The fee for this facility is payable on commencement and renewed at the end of each following financial year.

Completion and filing of Annual Return (Companies House filing fee not included);
(Optional) Preparation and signing guidance for Companies House forms;
(Optional) Guidance on the preparation of board minutes of directors and member meetings;
(Optional) keeping and maintenance of the company’s statutory registers/ company books; and
Basic administrative guidance.

Our experts also have experience reconstructing statutory registers / company books which have been lost, damaged or are otherwise inoperable. An extra charge may apply here.

Nominee officers – Cost from £150 plus VAT and outlays

In addition to the invaluable company secretarial support offered above, Macdonald Henderson understands that from time to time many clients would appreciate the comfort of an experienced law firm fulfilling either the optional Company Secretary office or to sit in onboard meetings as a nominee director. For this purpose Macdonald Henderson incorporated Shelf Director Limited and Shelf Secretary Limited and would be glad, subject to agreement of relevant terms and conditions, to take up any such office. The fee for this facility is payable on commencement and renewed at the end of each following financial year.
