What is a company secretarial?
Company secretarial refers to the responsibilities of ensuring that a company complies with legal and regulatory requirements. This includes maintaining company records, filing annual returns, and ensuring that the company’s governance structure complies with applicable laws and regulations. A company secretary is typically responsible for these responsibilities and acts as the main point of contact between the company and regulatory bodies.
