The company secretary of a company is responsible for ensuring full compliance with the requirements of the Companies Act, 71 of 2008 (“the Act”), whilst attending to statutory administration and maintenance of its statutory records. The same service is rendered in terms of the Close Corporations Act, Act 69 of 1984.

In compliance with the Companies Act, all companies must prepare and maintain minutes of all board and shareholders meetings. As company secretary Henzel prepares the required notice, agenda, attendance register and minutes for all such meetings and provide guidance to the company directors.
Henzel are often appointed to conduct an audit of the statutory records of a company to ensure that the company’s records are up-to-date and in compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act.

N.B. Additional statutory services after registration of a new company or purchase of a shelf company include (at extra cost):

Inevitably some changes and amendments will need to be made in any company at some stage. Henzel competently make all changes, regardless of who originally registered the company.

These amendments include:

  • Conversions of companies

Conversion of a CC into a company as well as changes of CC name, members, accounting officer and registered address, as well as the CC’s financial year end.

To avoid deregistration, companies and CCs need annually to file annual returns and financial statements or a financial accountability supplement. All of these are expertly and competently handled by Henzel Services.
