According to section 270 of the companies act 2006, if a company does not have a company secretary, then all the administrative and compliance tasks will become the responsibility of the director or a person who works on behalf of the director. Hence, many private companies hire a company secretary to avoid complications and reduce administrative and compliance, and corporate governance responsibilities. Although it is not a compulsion for private companies, public companies must have a company secretary.
Who is the company secretary? Well, a company secretary is a certified person who takes the responsibility of ensuring the smooth functioning of the administration of the company. They are also responsible for complying with corporate governance, financial and legal regulations, managing shareholders administration, providing advice to the company's Board of Directors, etc.
A company secretary acts as a mediator between the board of directors or higher authority and the government, stakeholders, or other bodies. They also represent the company on behalf of it and communicate with the world by sharing some information. They keep and record all sorts of information such as meetings, changes of directors, changes in policy, or any other internal matter. They perform a tough, complex, and responsible job in any organization.
Nowadays, many firms get a choice to choose a full-time company secretary or outsource it online. Well, it depends on you, how much importance and work you want to assign to a third party. Hiring a company secretary will add value to your company’s management and smooth functioning. They have a broader view of general management, taxation, communications, meeting arrangements, and fixation, etc.
