Bridgehouse helps UK companies reach new heights in business transparency!

Since 6th April 2016, there has been a statutory requirement for all UK companies to keep a Register of People with Significant Control (PSC).

Due to high demand, our team has developed a full end to end PSC Register service that provides a hassle free way of managing this new piece of legislation. Since April, our team has helped over 300 UK companies create successful PSC registers and is now actively looking for new UK companies to work with.

Our PSC Service includes:

  • An experienced, named, team member to look after your specific company or group of companies
  • An initial consultation to establish those people who actually qualify as being a PSC our team uses the latest guidelines, as provided by Companies House, to ensure the Registers are compliant and in accordance with the latest published rules.
  • Due Diligence and necessary Information Gathering.
  • Inputting of details and creation of the PSC Register.
  • Ongoing maintenance of the PSC Register – regular review points are diarised to stay on top of this.

Companies House filings

With the day-to-day pressures involved in running a business, without an in-house company secretary it can be difficult to keep on top of your statutory obligations. But Companies House filings are a vital part of the governance of your company, and it is important for this to be done accurately and on time. Bridgehouse Company Secretaries can help you to file all the relevant information and documents at Companies House, saving you time and helping you to avoid the penalties and repercussions of a missed filing deadline or a wrongly completed form.

 What does my company need to file at Companies House?

shutterstock_223150981Depending on whether your organisation is a charity or not for profit, listed company, leasehold company or private sector company, the exact legal requirements for companies house filings will vary. At a minimum you are required to register some basic information about your company, such as the details of your directors and your official address, and file annual reports and accounts to disclose your annual income and expenditure.

Bridgehouse Company Secretaries can help you complete and file your company’s Confirmation Statement and annual accounts, ensuring you never miss a deadline. We can also help keep your company’s paperwork in apple pie order by dealing with company director or secretary changes and any other notifications you have a legal obligation to file. There’s no need to have a permanent, full time Company Secretary on your books – you can hire a company secretary from Bridgehouse on a temporary or part time basis.

Public and accountable

Registering information about your company and filing annual reports and accounts puts the information in the public domain. This ensures that anyone can find out basic facts and figures about your company. As well as complying with your statutory obligations, this also ensures that your company is run in a transparent and accountable manner.

Transparency and accountability are important elements of good corporate governance, and will help your company to run efficiently and effectively. At Bridgehouse Company Secretaries, we can advise on best practice for good governance as well as providing a range of other company secretarial services – just get in touch for a chat by telephone or email.

Penalties

risk managementShould you miss a Companies House filing deadline it can lead to financial penalties and even sanctions. If mistakes are made in a document that is then filed at Companies House, a court order is required to remove wrongly filed documents from the company’s public records. Avoid the expense of a court order or wrongly completed forms by consulting an expert. Bridgehouse Company Secretaries will take care of your Companies House filings and ensure that everything is filed on time and in the correct way.
