Corporate secretarial services

Legal structures and regulatory processes differ greatly from one jurisdiction to another. Cross-border businesses and transactions often find themselves lost in the maze of local company law and regulation governing the creation, management and control of legal entities. 

TMF Group’s comprehensive international corporate secretarial services – delivered flexibly and consistently worldwide – transform the confusion into simple, transparent, controlled compliance across any number of jurisdictions.

What are corporate secretarial services?

Efficient, stable, compliant entities and structures are the foundations of all business success. But each jurisdiction comes with its own distinct approach to company registration, incorporation and legal compliance, making effective multi-jurisdiction due diligence baffling and burdensome.

TMF Group’s global network, including thousands of expert company secretaries, lawyers and paralegals, gives you an insider’s understanding of more than 80 jurisdictions.

As world leaders in cross-border company formation, we take care of all the unfamiliar procedures, obligations and administrative details while you focus on the business.

We even tackle the host of post-incorporation compliance tasks, including registrations for chambers of commerce, business licensing, social security, pensions and payroll tax – any of which can stop a new business in its tracks.

Why does my business need corporate secretarial support services?

When it comes to keeping entities in good standing year-round – a struggle for even the largest international company, especially in the remote corners of your operations – we can do it all, everywhere: 

  • filing annual accounts and tax returns with local authorities
  • completing standard legal procedures for directorships, shareholders, entity names and registered addresses
  • drafting customary legal documents
  • managing communications with investors and employees
  • maintenance of books and records
  • constant tracking of entity registrations and compliance deadlines
  • alerts for local regulatory and legal changes.

However great or small the corporate secretarial challenge in any one jurisdiction we meet the need flexibly and cost-effectively, scaling up or down smoothly, from the part-time support of a single individual to the services of a whole team.
