What you need to know when you switch company secretary over to Futurebooks

Once the engagement letter has been signed, Futurebooks will prepare a complete set of documentation within one (1) working day. These documents include:

  • Notice to existing Company Secretary from the Directors
  • Directors Resolution for resigning existing Company Secretary
  • Directors Resolution for appointing Company Secretary from Futurebooks.
  • Directors Resolution for Change of Registered Office (if applicable)

Once these documents are circulated to and signed by the relevant parties, we will:

  • Coordinate with your existing Company Secretary for their resignation letter
  • File the above changes on ACRA, and
  • Coordinate with your existing Company Secretary to take over all physical and digital company files they are holding.

We ensure that the whole process is swift and easy for everyone involved.

We will scope the work and provide you with a fee estimate. We will also liaise with ACRA to possibly waive off  or reduce any penalties.

If requested, we can also perform a detailed Company Secretarial due diligence exercise, with a view to identifying any incorrect or missing documentation or lodgments prior to our takeover.
