WHAT IS CORPORATE GOVERNANCE?

Corporate governance is all about how companies are managed and overseen. The company secretary is a key part of this, making sure the company follows rules, keeps good records, and helps communication between the board, management, and shareholders. But corporate governance goes beyond just these tasks – it's about having rules and practices that make sure companies are open, accountable, and behave ethically.

WHAT IS COMPANY SECRETARY?

A Company Secretary is someone appointed by a company to make sure it follows all the rules and laws in Singapore. They have a lot of experience and know a lot about how businesses should be run properly. Company Secretaries can also help with giving advice and solving problems between the company's bosses (directors) and the people who own shares in the company (shareholders).

In Singapore, it's a rule that every company must have a Company Secretary. This person helps with important tasks like keeping track of taxes and financial records, along with other duties like making sure meetings are held properly and paperwork is filed correctly.

WHY DO YOU NEED A COMPANY SECRETARY?

Well, it's actually a rule that every company in Singapore must have one within 6 months of being incorporated. This person can't be left vacant for more than 6 months. If you don't want to handle this yourself, you can hire us to do it for you.

The Company Secretary is an important person because they help make sure your company follows all the rules. They also help with things like answering questions from the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA). It's actually a law that every company must have a Company Secretary.

Having a professional Company Secretary, who is also a Registered Filing Agent with ACRA, can help you avoid getting into trouble. For example, they can make sure you don't miss deadlines for filing important documents with ACRA, which could save you from having to pay fines.

  • Making sure the company follows all legal and regulatory rules from organizations like SGX, ACRA, IRAS, and CPF board.
  • Keeping track of important company records and documents.
