Cheap Company Secretary

Any advice on getting a cheap Company Secretary for a newly formed Ltd
company.

I have one already but they are in Dublin and cannot come over to the
UK to sign for my business bank account.

Me too ;o).

Or you could just send them the form via the post, I presume you only mean
they have to sign for the initial bank application.

Natwest want the Company Secretary to present themselves to the branch
with ID. Sending by post isn't enough for the bank

The Banks don't take your word for who the Co Sec is, they
get the info from Companies House. So you'd have to appoint
someone and then wait for all the bumf to be processed before
you can wheel them into the Bank to sign.......

To be honest it would be easier to get them on the shuttle from
Dublin for an afternoon.

Can't you just wheel in a stooge off the street? I mean make him
co sec with all the formalities, get him to show the bank his Boy
Scout badge, and then once the account is up and running, have a
board meeting and resolve to replace the scout with the Irishman?

Yeah I wanted to get them over but they won't come because they have
no time. I was not impressed...

I have actually helped a company through this and it ended up
as a nightmare. The guy appointed his Mum as Co Sec and
thought his problems were over. Sent off the consumer credit
license with his Mum on and trudged her into the Bank.

Turns out Mum had a bad credit history so the Bank said no, and
so did the Consumer Credit people.

So you need not only a stooge, but an upright pillar of the community
stooge, willing to put their name to your new start up :)

As I say, get the dude on the shuttle !

Used to have a girl from the local council estate as my secretary, she was
cheap!
