Case Study No. 1

On-Going Support To Your own Company Secretarial Department. 

The UKís leading short break operator, based in the Midlands with its own Company Secretary required the assistance of a fully qualified and experienced Company Secretary for  an average of two days per week for four years leading up to a number of major re-financing deals and floatation on the Stock Exchange. Whilst it now has two full-time additional members of staff for this period it found my assistance a flexible and cost effective alternative to employing their own part-time staff or agency staff. 

They also found it extremely useful recently, when they had a member of staff unexpectedly on sick leave for an extended period and were able to call on a qualified Company Secretary, with knowledge of their business who could be called on at short notice to assist with their Accounts preparation and AGM management.

As a 50/50 jointly owned business it was vital that the minutes, procedures and record keeping were and impeccable.
