Company Secretarial Services
By combining our extensive experience of Company Secretarial practice with the best available software solutions, Callidus Secretaries Limited is able to offer a comprehensive service at a fraction of the cost of employing an experienced professional within the business.

We offer a cost effective personal service from a dedicated team of professionals and the Callidus Support Team.
We can take over responsibility for some or all companies for whom your firm or individuals act as Company Secretary and transfer them to Callidus’ system which is a hosted web based version of Blueprint, the leading Company Secretarial Software. Alternatively, where you use Blueprint already (or other system) we can administer this on your behalf.
We are generally appointed as the legal Company Secretary for Client Groups but can undertake the work in the background if required or on an ad hoc basis. Appointing Callidus, is particularly attractive to small groups of companies in assisting them take advantage of the provisions under the Companies Act 2006, not to have an individual as the named Company Secretary.

In certain circumstances we can act as UK corporate director for clients who require legitimate confidentiality protection or who require their UK company to be tax resident in the UK. We can also provide access to natural persons to act as Non Executive Directors. Fees vary according to exactly what is undertaken and in what capacity. Subject to Money Laundering Regulations.
We will arrange to monitor the Companies House Register in England, Wales and Scotland on your behalf for similar names or similar sounding names and relevant acronyms, variants and abbreviations.
