Frequently Asked Questions
How would we name your company secretary when we already have one?
If you already have a named company secretary, and you wish to engage us instead, your current company secretary must resign first.
This process can be roughly described as follows:
1. we conduct engagement and preparation for changes documents;
2. we notify both you and the current company secretary of outstanding matters that both parties must settle before the latter’s departure;
3. once all outstanding matters are settled, we obtain your current company secretary’s resignation letter;
4. submit all relevant documents to SSM in order reflect the changes; and
5. we collect all statutory books and documents from your current company secretary.
Is it legally mandatory to have a named company secretary?
Certainly, it is required under Companies Act 2016. Upon incorporation and also anytime your company secretary resigns, you are to appoint another in 30 days. Failure to abide this contravenes the Act, and will lead to penalties.
