The company secretary is one of the most important people in your business and also the first to get involved in Malaysia. In Kuala Lumpur a company secretary assists in the registration process, which is required by the Companies Act 2016. Additionally, companies secretaries are qualified and experienced to offer foreign businesses advice on the type of business they should structure in addition to other matters.
Businesses will require the services of a company secretary on an ongoing basis because they are responsible for maintaining the company’s records. Take for instance any statutory information that’s changed like directorships or perhaps the registered address of the company’s director needs to be duly updated with the registrar of companies. Doing that requires filing a statutory form, which is handled by a company secretary. Additionally, company secretaries are also responsible for attending shareholder meetings, and maintaining minutes of each meeting.
