Course description


The Company Secretary shares responsibility with the Directors for ensuring compliance with many aspects of company law. This Company Secretary’s Role Part 1 – Essential Tasks training course focuses on those responsibilities so that you can keep yourself legal and no longer need to worry that you might be missing something.

The course will

  • enable you to recognise your responsibilities as the Company Secretary and when something needs to be done;
  • give you sufficient knowledge and materials to decide what needs to be done (e.g. what needs to be filed or recorded); and
  • where appropriate, do it yourself.


Statutory registers and records

  • Maintaining the company’s statutory registers
  • Whether a private company should opt to have any of its registers kept by Companies House
  • Other statutory records
  • Place where records should be kept
  • Inspection and copying rights

Companies House filings

  • Filing the right forms and documents with Companies House
  • How to file resolutions with Companies House
  • Web and software filing
  • How to correct mistakes

Directors’ decisions

  • How to prepare for and run board meetings
  • How to get agenda papers in and out on time
  • Writing minutes

Contracts, Constitution and Company identity

  • Secretary’s role in the execution of contracts and other documents
  • Ensuring compliance with the rules on disclosure of the company’s identity
  • Processing a change of company name
  • The importance of a company’s Articles of Association
  • The procedures for amending Articles of Association.

Suitability - Who should attend?


The training course is designed mainly for newly appointed Company Secretaries (including deputies and assistants), although people often find it useful as a refresher.

This is the first part of a two-day course. Company Secretary’s Role Part 2 deals with other core duties of the company secretary relating to shares, share capital changes, group structures, matters for which shareholder approval is required and how it can be obtained, accounts and auditors, and getting rid of unwanted companies. It also covers the duties of directors in order to help you keep your directors legal.

Although we would encourage delegates to attend Parts 1 and 2, attendance on Part 1 may suffice for those who want an overview of the role. If you choose to attend both parts, you can attend on successive days or leave a gap between attending each part. Attendance on both parts can be booked separately.
