Company Secretary and Registered Office

A company must have a registered office in Gibraltar to which all communications and notices may be addressed. Further every company incorporated in Gibraltar must appoint a secretary.

The company secretary is responsible for ensuring that the statutory books of the company are kept up to date and in good order.  This includes but is not limited to, the filing of an annual return with Companies house and the keeping of the minute book.

The annual return is a snapshot of certain information relating to a company on an annual basis.  The return should include:

  • the name of the company;
  • the company’s registered number;
  • the company’s registered office address;
  • details of the company’s directors and secretary;
  • details of the company’s share capital, including its shareholders; and
  • The main activity.

The Minute Book records the meetings of the directors of the company and the decisions made at these meetings referred to as resolutions.
