Governance and Company Secretary


Good Corporate Governance and the Company Secretary position of a company are often seen as going in hand in hand with each other. The increased importance of Corporate Governance has seen the role of Company Secretary enhanced and the appointment is generally seen as a key appointment. In most jurisdictions the appointment of a company secretary is usually required by law for a corporate entity and the appointment is usually an individual rather than a corporate body.

The Company Secretary is seen as a key appointment of the company and is responsible for the smooth administration of the company and for assisting with the good governance of the business. Whilst not having the responsibilities and duties of a Director, the Company Secretary has important administrative responsibilities and may be liable if they are not carried out properly.
