Company Secretarial Retainer ship Service
Corporate Secretarial Compliance is an essential part of a corporate function failing which stringent penalties are imposed under the provisions of Companies Act and LLP Act, Other Corporate Act.
Though appointment of a company secretary is not mandatory for all the companies, however if, your company does not have a Company Secretary, the Directors become totally responsible/liable for this work.
