This package enables companies to pass the company secretarial function to Michelmores to manage on their behalf. This package includes the following services:
Michelmores’ address will be used as the SAIL address in respect of the company’s (or LLP’s) statutory books. We will ensure that all routine documentation is filed at Companies House, including the confirmation statement and will maintain the company’s (or LLP’s) statutory books.
Michelmores’ address will simply be used as the company’s (or LLP’s) registered office address. All correspondence received for the company (or LLP) will be forwarded to the company’s (or LLP’s) normal trading address.
Directors (or Designated Members in respect of LLPs) can now prevent their residential address from being placed on the public register by registering a service address. Michelmores are able to provide directors with a service address at either our Exeter, London or Bristol office. We will lodge with Companies House the necessary forms for the removal of your residential details from the public register and replace it with our address.
The company (or LLP) may keep its records for public inspection at a single alternative inspection location (SAIL), rather than at the company’s (or LLPs) registered office, provided Companies House is notified of this. Michelmores can provide you with this service by lodging the necessary form with Companies House so that Michelmores’ address will be used as the SAIL address of the company (or LLP). Michelmores will hold the statutory registers of the company (or LLP) which will be kept in the firm’s strongroom for safekeeping.
Michelmores Nominees Limited will be registered as the owner of shares in a company held for the benefit of another person (the beneficial owner). The beneficial owner may choose to appoint a nominee because it does not wish to have the shares registered in his/her own name. Michelmores Nominees Limited will execute a declaration of trust or enter into a nominee agreement with the beneficial owner in respect of such shares.
