TJ Briody & Co's company secretarial department provides clients with a full suite of cost effective company secretarial services, ensuring our clients have peace of mind that they meet the legal and administrative requirements imposed by the Companies Act 2014, the Registrar of Companies, the Revenue Commissioners and the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement.
Whatever sector your business operates in, our dedicated company secretarial team has the experience and expertise to provide tailored legal and regulatory advice to ensure your corporate affairs are in order.
Company formations in Ireland, UK and other jurisdictions and business name registration
We will support you in the formation of your company and file all the necessary paperwork. We will register business names.
Annual compliance services
All Irish registered companies are obliged to file an annual return with the Companies Registration Office. Through the use of specialist software and strict internal controls we can ensure your Companies Registration Office deadlines are monitored and met in a timely and efficient manner.
We will help you deal with all compliance matters from annual returns to officer appointment and resignation both in Ireland and abroad.
Corporate Governance Services
We provide assistance on a range of governance issues including:
Advice on the Companies Act 2014
Advice on compliance and regulatory issues
Advice on letterheads and other administrative issues
Preparation of director and shareholder resolutions
Maintenance of minute books and statutory registers
Attendance at board meetings to take minutes
The Companies Act 2014 requires companies to ensure all changes to company names, registered office address, directors, shareholders and share capital are notified to the Companies Registration Office. Our company secretarial team can assist you with all of your ad hoc company secretarial requirements and will provide the necessary documentation to ensure such changes are properly filed in compliance with the Companies Act 2014.
Registered office facility
Companies are obliged to have a registered office address located in the State. This is a formal address for a company to which all legal notices, including correspondence from the Companies Registration Office and Revenue Commissioners, will be sent.
In Ireland it must be a physical location, not a post office box. TJ Briody & Co. offers a professional registered office facility for our Irish and international clients and we ensure that all correspondence received at our address is forwarded to you, our client, in a timely manner.
As your business grows and evolves you may decide to change the structure or entities within a group for organisational, strategic or tax reasons.
We work closely with our other departments including tax, assurance and corporate finance to ensure that your company/group is structured in the most tax efficient manner and which encompasses both your corporate and personal strategies. We will advise on, prepare and file the relevant paperwork and we can attend board meetings to ensure correct procedural compliance.
Our company secretarial team can assist you in a number of areas, including:
Alterations of memorandums of association and articles of association and constitutions
Management of share certificates
Changes in issued share capital
Company and group restructures
Redemption's and share buy backs
Dissolution and restoration of companies
We will provide advice and the necessary documentation in relation to dissolving your company either through the voluntary strike off process or by way of a member’s voluntary liquidation.
Where your company has been struck off by the Companies Office or the Revenue Commissioners we will guide you through the restoration process and prepare the necessary paperwork.
