How to appoint a Secretary to your Limited Company

The company secretary is now an optional appointment. However, if you would like to appoint one, here’s how to do it:

If your company is on our company admin portal:

Login > “My Companies” > Click on your company name > “Appoint New Secretary” > Enter the relevant information and select “Continue”

The request is then sent to Companies House who normally accept it within 3 working hours.

If your company is not on our company admin portal:

Complete the “AP03 Appointment of secretary” form and mail it to Companies House (as per the instructions on the form). The request is normally accepted within one week.
