Legal compliance can be an administrative burden, especially for small and medium-sized businesses where directors are already under pressure. In such circumstances the appointment of a dedicated company secretary is not always a realistic proposition. However, Morton Fraser can deal with this burden on your behalf, allowing you to concentrate on other priorities – such as growing your business.

Benefits we bring to you 

We can act as company secretary and deal with all associated legal administrative and compliance matters, as well as offering a prime Edinburgh or Glasgow city centre registered office address service. It is a legal requirement for a limited company to maintain its statutory books records, but they are especially important if your company is involved in a sale or fund-raising, when past discrepancies can add time and cost to the procedure.

Our systems use tailored software to maintain those records for you electronically, as well as online filing at Companies House, making our systems efficient and secure. If you wish, we can service, and host, your AGM and advise on the law relating to director and/or shareholder meetings, including minute taking. Finally, we offer a one-off legal 'audit' of your company’s statutory books to ensure compliance.

Our approach to fees

A set annual fee is issued in advance on 1 May each year.
