Company Secretary – Personal Checklist Before Accepting Appointment

To finalise my personal due diligence before accepting the role of Company Secretary with your organization I would like to:

meet with you and the other Directors

obtain a fuller appreciation of the Company’s corporate structure and operational processes

address how I might interact with the Directors, other Company executives and various external professional advisers

be advised of the Company’s current financial position and forecasts review the statutory registers and minute books

review the Company’s policies and procedures

review the corporate governance statement, charters, codes, etc meet with key professional advisers, in particular lawyers and accountants/auditors

review subsidiaries’ corporate records. At that time we could also discuss in more detail the role of Company Secretary, remuneration arrangements and agree the way forward.
