Book Description

Do you run a limited company? Are you responsible for record-keeping in a company secretary role?

If you run a limited company, there is a whole range of legal duties and formalities you must follow. For the time-pressed limited company manager this can be a fraught process, as there are severe financial penalties for not complying with the limited company regulations.

This is where How to Run a Limited Company can help. This limited company guide is ideal for anyone who has taken on the role of company secretary. It provides clear advice on the limited company procedures to follow and paperwork to complete on key issues. Whether it’s appointing a limited company director, issuing shares or declaring a dividend, How to Run a Limited Company shows you how to comply with the requirements of Companies House, simply and effectively.

Most books on company law tend to be long and impenetrable. They make it hard for the non-professional company officer to see what he or she has to do. The authors have 20 years’ experience of providing professional company secretary advice, so they know the information and guidance limited company managers want. In writing How to Run a Limited Company they have honed down their expertise and knowledge into a simple guide for people who are responsible for ensuring that they keep their limited company operating within the law.

This expanded second edition of How to Run a Limited Company now includes more template minutes and resolutions. This expert guide includes a vast range of limited company advice and answers all your limited company questions including:

Limited company formation 

  • How do I form a limited company?
  • When a limited company is formed, what happens and what limited company forms do I need to deal with?

3.0 out of 5 stars Very brief 10 Aug. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book gave a very brief overview of running a limited company. The majority (over half) is example forms and templates so useful for those wishing to get an idea of how to format balance sheets etc. Could have gone into a bit more detail for example, only half a page on dividends with no info on tax. All in all, very basic summary.
