Company Incorporation: We will attend to all formalities of incorporation. These formalities include the following:
  • Ensuring that the proposed company’s name is suitable for registration.
  • Identifying the type of company most suitable for our client’s requirements.
  • Drafting the company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association to suit the particular circumstances and trading activities of the company/
  • Supply an Information Booklet to the officers of the company regarding their responsibilities.
Maintenance Of Statutory Registers
It is a requirement of the Companies Acts that each Company maintain various Statutory Registers setting out details of Directors, Shareholders, AGM Minutes etc. These Registers must be updated every time there is a change. A company is obliged to notify the Companies Office where those records are kept so that they are available for inspection at any time.

This is a very onerous obligation on company directors and the secretary which can result in significant fines and even jail sentences. Maintaining the Statutory Registers requires specialist training. We offer a full company Statutory Registers maintenance service.

Alteration Of Memorandum Of Association
Companies often need to alter their Memorandum and Articles of Association. For instance, lenders to a company often insist that there are clear powers for borrowing and also clear powers to allow the Company to carry out the objective or purpose for which the money is being borrowed. We can prepare the amended Memorandum of Association, various Minutes, Resolutions and Companies Office Forms to make the required changes.

Allotment Of Shares (Cash/Non-Cash)
A company may wish to increase its issued share capital, if for example the Company is admitting a new shareholder or if existing shareholders are contributing fresh capital to the company in exchange for new shares. Our Professionals will prepare the Directors Minutes, the Share Certificates, forms for submission to the Registrar of Companies and the updating of the Statutory Registers in order to implement the new allotment. Where the company is issuing the shares for a non-cash consideration, we can prepare all necessary documentation and liaise with the Registrar of Companies.

Change Of Company Name
Companies may wish to change their name for a variety of reasons, for example a change in the principle activities of the company, prior to the company going into liquidation or for marketing reasons. We can advise on the availability of a proposed company name. Once the name has been checked we can then prepare the various Minutes, Resolutions, and Companies Office Forms for signature by the Officers and Shareholders of the company.

Company Law Drafting Service
We will draft every manner of shareholder’s and directors resolution’s and other Company Law documents that are required in the course of the life of a company. It is important to understand that many tax planning strategies involve the use of Companies.

Directors Loans
There are severe restrictions under Company Law on Directors taking loans from their Companies. These restrictions can even affect very small loans. If a Director takes an unauthorised loan, then the Company Auditor is obliged to report him/her to the Registrar of Companies. We can offer advice in this area.
