Nominee Secretary - Update


M

Martin

I promised to report back....

Further to my post early last month, regarding the definition of a Nominee
Secretary, I've finally heard back from HMRC. They confirm that I'm not a
"Nominee Secretary" and thus don't need to register.

Curiously, HMRC quoted at me the very same paragraph (MLR9, 6.1.11) which I
had quoted to them in my question as NOT explaining what a Nom Sec is...!

HMRC's answer goes on to refer to MLR9 6.1.5 and say that registration is
not required because I only act for low risk businesses. Curious, as that
(by my reading) is not what 6.1.5 says.

At no point has HMRC said I am not a Nom. Sec. which rather suggests they
don't know the answer either.

Anyway, I'm content to keep HMRC's answer on file "in case" (and save the
£55) - but would be interested to hear if others here have had to consider
this issue. In particular, how does what "I do" differ from the Nom Sec
service provided by some formation agents?

TIA

Oops - sorry. The latter is correct. The former should have read... "I
don't need to register - but they have not said I'm not a Nom Sec" or words
to that effect.

Thanks for pointing that out, and apols for the error.
