Do companies limited by guarantee need a company secretary?


Setting up a new limited by guarantee company, and I’m just wondering if we need to appoint a secretary? I’ve been involved at a limited by shares company before, and it was recommended that we appoint a secretary. Does the same apply to limited by guarantee companies, or are we okay to go ahead without one?



No, there is no legal requirement to appoint a secretary to a private limited company, but you can appoint one during the company incorporation process or at any after the company has been set up.

A company secretary can be very beneficial - their role is to assist the directors with their administrative and managerial functions.
